Quote:It seems like everyone wants the latest and greatest, cutting edge mount, many of which have teething problems or cost a fortune or weigh a ton or something else is an issue. Is there a good, reliable classical EQ mount for mainly visual use, time proven, spare parts abound, or is this just as rare as a unicorn?/Ira

Quote:Well, that's true to some extent. Orion doesn't make a single mount...and parts for the mounts they sell are generally available from other sources.
Quote:Yep, Vixen Super Polaris/Great Polaris/Deluxe are the workhorse mounts!
