Quote:How difficult was the process of installing the kit? Also, did you see a significant difference in terms of your peak-to-peak PE? I'm just trying to see if I really want to tear my mount apart for this.
Quote:...but when you consider that the initial cost of the Atlas combined with the cost to upgrade the bearings is still about half of what you would pay for a losmandy G-11
Quote:But think about this. How come you never see anyone that has a before AND after Pec curve or detailed guiding results of the Atlas on these boards. Doesn't that make you think?

Quote:From what I've been reading, it's not bearings that contribute the most to PE, it's the worm gears. Has anyone replaced the Atlas worms with high precision units?
