Quote:Stellarvue has a new mount just out, the MG. Not many out in the field yet. Starlighter has one on order I think. I believe they recommend it up to their 115mm and they tend to be conservative. It does have slo-mo.

“I am the only person to ever ace a 1951 USAF resolution test. My 'to observe' list says 'done'. I do not use charts or atlases when I starhop; men do not use maps. One of my sketches won an SBIG deep sky imaging contest. I am the life of star parties I have never attended. I never say anything looks like a faint fuzzy - not even a faint fuzzy. Pilots aim green laser pointers at me. Don Pensack proofreads my CN forum posts.” - The Most Interesting Astronomer in the Universe
Quote:Can't be the same mount, can it? According to the owner, Stellarvue is "waiting for gears" and will be "cranking out" its own mount. The Kunming is a turnkey, complete mount solution. There'd be no reason to wait for parts or crank anything out if it were simply a re-branded product.Regards,Jim
