Thanks for sharing the pics. I met Kevin at NEAF and he unclutched his demo mount and let me swing it around a bit. I was impressed with how smooth the axes were. He also told me about the internal encoders that let you use it in both star hop mode and go to mode. I was curious about the numbers, thanks for posting that as well.
