Quote:Skysbd,Well with direct experience just a cheap Meade goto. Kind of fun to play with but not much else.The part that troubles me is that it seems that all these goto and push to mounts all seem unreliable, or don't work below 50 degrees or are not accurate enough. Lack of confidence in these products is what bothers me the most. I'm not even sure of some of the big players in the $3000 plus range from what I read. To spend even what I consider my limit to mount at present a total of $1000 worth of scopes would be a stretch. I would only do that if I knew I would be spending the equal amount on a very good scope in the future that the mount would carry.I just don't want problems.
