All I can say is that this mount is under-appreciated. It is not an astro-photography dream, but for visual it is more than steady enough. I was originally going to convert the mount to Alt Atz mode but after setting it up I think I will use it like it is for now!
This is allot of value in a mount that cost me $125.00! I had one small adjustment, to mount a vixen dovetail on the thing. I took the dovetail from my old non-wroking Nexstar mount and with $5.45 worth of wood and bolts made an adapter to marry the two. Photos attached.
