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.

Quote:Hi Jim, I will take a few shots of the head and post it for you. Guys, I have two nine pound weights and a single six pound. I'm slightly scope heavy with my beefy TOA130 and accessories. I've read that the Mach 1 has the same motors as the larger mounts which means they are very strong. I'm sure a slight off balance won't be an issue for the motors. Will this have a detrimental effect on tracking? Again, this is an imaging mount.Faron

Quote:Thanks guys, I will order another weight. Andy, I can't put a Meade weight on there...
