Advice for alt-az mount, 80mm f/11 refractor

80mm f/11 Celestron FirstScope 80
Casual Sun, Moon, Planets, brighter deep sky.
The supplied alt-az mount is unsatisfactory. The 'scope and my eyepieces are fine for my needs.
I'm looking at the Vixen PORTA mount, the William Optical Eazy Touch, and the offerings from Helix.
Any advice would be much appreciated, and perhaps I have overlooked another manufacturer.

Shown here is the Voyager AltAz mount with my old Astro 76 mm f/18 refractor OTA.
