I'd like to try one but too rich for my blood (& wallet).

I noticed you have the dovetail attached to the bottom holes in the rings, which raises the center of gravity quite a bit. Does that cause you any problems on that mount, especially as heavy at the AT90 is?
I've actually done the opposite with mine - attached the dovetail to the top holes of the rings in order to lower the center of gravity, and it solved most of the balance issues. I've got it set up on a Stellarvue M7 mount.

I'm curious about what you have the HH attached to. It looks like a GTO tripod but what is the "hub" that joins the HH to the tripod?
The "hub" if I understand your question correctly is the bottom of the mount itself; the black anodized azimuth disc, the edge of which makes up the bearing surface for the azimuth control knob shaft (see attached image). I posted some really close up views of this arrangement (and other parts) a few weeks ago here.
Beautiful mount (and scope) by the way - these things really are functional works of art. Congrats Jason!
