Photo is through my 1988 AP 6" f/8 @ 1200mm focal length.
The shot appears to lack any drift - this will allow me to shoot subs.....
The mount is solid and the go-to is very consistent. I'm quite happy with my purchase.

I consider my Mach 1 to be a 'lifetime' purchase and I have never had any trouble rationalizing the cost to myself. The incredible performance and consistency of the mount still bring a smile to my face every night I get to use it.

The family atmosphere of that company is about the only example I know if where such a claim was true.

The OkieTex dust is fine, like talcum powder and sticks to all surfaces. Especially troubling is how it sticks to the rubber housing of the Hand Controller. I had to use a lint roller to get it off there.
At AP's offices I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary. You have to be 'buzzed in' just to get to the reception area - it's not at all a retail operation. The front office is as my photo shows - two women garrison the front office and all the rest must be out back somewhere, making stuff. George was very helpful in spending a while with me to show me everything I needed to know about setting up and running the mount. No Roland sighting....
