Does anyone know when the next production run will be completed? I think it was communicated a few months back that the mounts would be completed in July. The Bisque website still shows a 4 month lead time. Thanks.

Just post your question on SB website. You don't want to hear it from the horse's mouth, do you.
BTW Why are you interested in outdated mount/technology? :grin:

Thanks, I called them and it's about 2 weeks until the mounts are completed. I'd sure love to do a comparo between the MX and the AP 1100GTO.

Come on Alph.. really? With PEC, Protrack & Tpoint guys are getting 1-2 arc second PE with the MX. I'm not sure about your requirements but that would satisfy 99% of amateur astronomers needs. I also think that SB has the best 'all-in-one' solution on the market today. Which is why I too am awaiting for this production run to be complete so I can get my hands on the chunk of shiny red aluminum that screams perfection. :grin: (PMX)

Edit: I think I just caught the sarcasm, lol Oh well, it's Friday!

I suspect they have a Paramount on Melmac. In a totally unbiased way, of course.
