Congratulations on the new mount! It should really handle your scopes well. You're gong to have to let us know how it works out. First light report and pictures...obligatory...

Quite happy with it to say the least. I DID pick up a pair of the orange replacement ADM saddle bolts at the show. Definitely didn't like the stock ones that come with the saddle. Always felt like I couldn't get them secure enough.
Pics to follow eventually..

My booth was 1 booth away from Astro-Physics; I had to look at the AP3600 all weekend long... just to come back home to my NEQ6

I guess my assumption is they might sell a few accessories, but nothing else.

So I've gotta ask of anyone who was at NEAF. Does Astro-Physics show up with any mounts or scopes to sell,
Like the other high-end manufacturers (and like most of the others such as Meade and Celestron), they are there to showcase their products and/or announce new ones. They aren't there to sell.

Need to sort out a better finder mount. The First batch of rings that were made left something to be desired, but it was all that was available..
The Orange ADM dovetail bolts I grabbed at the show from them this year. Didn't have enough to get the complete set, so I just got those. Of all the replacements they make, these are the ones that are most needed. The stock bolt heads are flat. Never felt I could get them tight enough.. I may get the north pin bolts next year, and possibly the RA and DEC clamp handles too..
