I lost count of my scopes. Now I just want mobility. I came, I saw, I bought some interesting accessories, and put names to faces: NEAF 2012, ASAE 2012, SWAP 2013, ASAE 2013.
Others may disagree. Your millage may vary. Void where prohibited by law.
Quote:The new AP mount is the 1100GTO. There was a highly popular GOTO mount called the GT-1100 some 14 years ago now. I do wish they had chosen a different name for the new AP mount. Oh well, too late now.

Quote:Not with the encoders. I'm guessing $11k without and $14k with the encoders.
Quote:If that is the actual price point I have to say it looks very attractive with the stated capacity.
I would probably look at a 1000 or a 2000 when it's time to get a beefier mount than the Mach1, simply due to price..
Quote:Does anyone know or have an idea of the price of 1100GTO? Not yet listed on AP site. Thx
George You know you're getting on when the equipment you farmed with is showing up as suburban lawn ornaments.
Quote:I think next mount should be an upgrade for the Mach1GTO to use an encoder as an option. And release the Apcc for sale.

Quote:I also think that next round, Roland should consider produce more small and medium refractor.
