A quick question to those who have had first-hand experience of both scopes...

Is there much difference in motor noise between these two scopes when slewing and tracking? Can any assumptions be made regarding the quality of their mounts by the noise they each make?

Thanks - its nearly decision time!

I think the LS is quieter. The larger drives seem to help.
