i prefert to change with the new ME2.
Here the two mounts in my house :
Friday night, the weather was good, i go to my observatory to install the mount.
lot of wire inside the mount
- 4 USB (two include on the mount)
- 4 power
after hours works, the wires are all in the pass
i remake the wire couple for the CCD/Focuser and use Mount Port pour power 12V (external power unit) :
The setup is ready to do the TPOINT
First feeling is good, i see no flexure on a flip, after 3 Tpoint the polar align was perfect and i can do tpoint with 200 starq.
Next good night , i have to do the PEC and i can start the first light with this mount.
i will give you news

I put the mount ME1 for sales on forum, it's was sales ten minutes after.
The ME2, the RA/DEC worm block is ,not a nuts but a switch. With 72 kg it's perfect, it's a very good improvement.
