Excellent review. I wanted to replace my SLT mount with CubePRO, however I changed my mind (after reading the review)and will eventually go for the MiniTower.

When I saw those Coronados on the scope, I really wondered how he planned to test the goto aspects -the difficutly in finding alignment stars.:foreheadslap: Glad I read on.

The Cube Pro is a great concept, I think when the next version is released many issues will have been resolved.

If the Cube Pro could truly hold 12 lbs. it would be a great portable mount.

I'm still holding out hope. It sounds like they got the electronics right, but need to work on the mechanics.
