I was checking it out, but happy with my older version Unistar Deluxe.

That would be great Adam if my mount comes that way. But I do not know how old this demo is, or if it has the same kind of saddle plate as yours. We shall see.
The dual purpose saddle looks like a recent offering. If your demo Unistar has 4 mounting holes on the altitude head then it can be upgraded. Best to deal with Larry directly when adding new parts as his products have evolved over the years.

I mount the 7" duel clamping saddle on a CGE tripod or a Meade field tripod for my C14 and Meade 12 SCT's..the Unistar deluxe single clamp on a medium surveyors tripod for my Meade 8" SCT and the Unistar light on a light surveyors tripod for my SV 102ED refractor.
The mount is very smooth once you balance the scope properly..no need for slow motion controls. Enjoy!

I'm so sorry about shipping problems that you are dealing with. I just had one myself that put a part 2 of an order 2 weeks after the 1st part. I was concerned as to its whereabouts and also frustrated. It has finally been resolved. It is said that patience is a virtue, but it is really hard sometimes. Best of luck.

Not really I just like using the Graemlins!!
Don't hold anything back, let us know if you are getting excited.

But seriously, I would like details of a "test drive". I'm thinking about one for my "ES" AR102.
