Quote:My point was to go AP rather than Tak if buying new... not to buy a lesser mount. The RAPAS is reputedly just as good as the Tak polar scope (unlike the unlamented PASILL4).
Quote:Ah.. well I really can't see what Tak provides that AP does not... and AP is cheaper. Better support. Lower depreciation. US company. The only downside is that some of their mounts have a waiting list. I believe no more Mach1's till 2014.
Quote:AP mounts need support and Takahashi mounts do not.
