Thanks for them numbers Ed, seems like one of my Voyager brackets would bolt on, might look funny with the smaller face plate but would have to make a real one to fit like I'd prefer.

My new T-Rex has been ordered. Should we start a club William? :rockon:

Sweet! Definitely post when you get it. Did you get the standard base for the CGEM ?

I did indeed. I ordered the standard (CGEM type) tripod too, even though I have a CGEM tripod and the pier extension already. I did it because those tripods are hard to come by and if mine ever breaks it would be nice to have a backup. And the price was reasonable.

Should get it delivered before the middle of the month.

I emailed JMI about a train-n-track for this mount. They responded that it could definitely be done but they needed someone to send them a T-Rex mount. I am not willing to do that with such an expensive mount. I wish the guy building these would get with JMI and work that out. Those motors are super quiet and much nicer to use than manual slow-mo. I have them on my AT Voyager now and they work great.
