Review by:
I use this mount mostly for imaging but also for some visual observing. It's light enough to move easily from the garage to the yard or to put in the car. But it's robust enough to carry a moderate load. I image with a C8 (at 1260mm) and have gotten 15 minute guided exposures. The mount auto-guides well, though it's sensitive to balance. It's well worth it to work out the balance of your rig early.

If you like to use GPS, I find that the GPS can be hit and miss on this mount. It usually finds itself but, when it doesn't, it seems there is no way to force it to. It doesn't really matter to me, as I only ever use it from my house and I know where that is.

Go-To is good, not great. It is better than my Celestron mounts (AVX and CG-5) but with a good alignment puts your target in the field.

I've never owned a higher end mount but this mount has been a pleasure to use. (Posted on 7/22/2019)
