I went on a nice driving trip to the central coast of California with my wife this week and the route home takes us right by OPT. I stopped in this afternoon and picked up the Paramount MX while it was still on sale. This is going to be the last, best mount I'll ever be able to buy. I can't wait to start pouring over the manual. Using it is going to take a while, I don't really have an OTA yet.

Congratulations. Note that many nearby SDAA members have Paramounts including the Paramount MX and can help you in the event you should ever need any help. Also note that the folks on the Software Bisque support forums (at the Software Bisque website) are very helpful too.
