I'm thinking of trying this mount for my Canon but have not seen any reviews. Are there any users out there with some first had experience?

Thanks!

I am also looking into this mout for my AT72 short tube refractor (3.4 kg max). Did you ever get this mount and have some advice on if one should buy it or not?
Cheers and thanks...

Also seeking some input...for a 120 mm ST refractor. It weights about 4 kg which is the max load advertised for the Allview. So technically, it qualifies, BUT...is it a realistic load?
