Admittedly both the Gemini and the clutches take getting used to but once you do.......Just about everything else pales in comparision at least in its price range and below.....and against more than few that cost more.

That Gladious is is a neat looking contraption......

Hi all,

OK... after a week of good seeing (we had 5 weeks of rain) I can officially certify that the Losmandy G11 Gemini mount is just fine. I have nothing to complain about. It just took some practice... about 2 imaging sessions... to get used to using it. By the third night it was acting like an old friend... but on the first night it was pure hell...(but only because of my lack of familiarity with it).
