Quote:I'm also curious if the idler/tensioner pulleys are spring loaded or fixed (I would assume fixed or extremely heavy springs).
Quote:Thanks for the e-mail adress Ed. I was e-mailing with Johannes Baader of Baader planetarium. He was then talking to Avalon. We had a thread about it on our Danish forum at the time and I asked Mr. Baader for permission to post his replies, but he wouldn't allow it. As a matter of policy they never post on internet forums.
Quote:I may do that Ed, but I'm not sure it would achieve anything when they deny the problem, and as I said I decided to keep the mount and just deal with it. Potential buyers should be aware of it though.

Quote:I’m not saying that the mount is not capable of excellent tracking. As a matter of fact I’ve achieved better FWHM with this mount than any other I’ve used, but it requires calm weather and good seeing.
