Well, looking for a mount for an incoming TMB92L. I was thinking DSV-1 for alt-as but, iOptron looks interesting for a goto mount. Any other good ideas out there from TMB92 users? I want to stay away from heavy mounts. If I get another, bigger api I'll get a bigger mount then.

Gibralter looks nice but, not the TMB92L is a very short tube and not sure how well that would work.

Thx,
Rob

Lapides-modified Tak Teegul? It's more than sufficient for that scope, has slow motion controls, excellent build quality. I use mine with a 4 inch refractor on Gitzo carbon tripod. The whole rig is solid and light.
