Quote:Quote:IF iOptron can keep the price low...I emailed iOptron a couple of weeks ago and the mounts were supposed to ship in January but were delayed due to problems with the worm manufacturer. They rejected about 20% of the initial batch and about 90% of the second batch. They indicated that they would stand by their advertised PE specs and pricing.If they don't then that will cause a number of people to recalculate their next mount purchase.
