I was wondering if anyone else had videos of their mounts slewing? I'm looking for a quieter one and I wish I'd seen this before I'd bought one LOL :foreheadslap:

I have the Orion Sirius (same as the HEQ5 I believe) and it is very quiet when slewing.

Clear nights,
Brad

I'm sorry about that. I had no control over the popups. On my system it just opens 1 in the background. Everyone else is now warned...
