Quote:Hi EveryoneI understand that one of the original engineers/consultants of the fabled Astro Physics and Paramount ME/MX classy range of Mounts was Rob Miller, who before emigrating to the USA, had been building high quality instruments for many years in this Country.I came to know of this brilliant engineer back in the 1990's.when I was buying eyepieces from David Hinds who in those days had a factory and show rooms in Tring Hertfordshire………At this time Rob was producing Mounts/'Scopes at his factory and having seen examples of his work I contracted to buy his portable, precision PM1 equatorial head, with the QS5 dual axis stepper motor drive and hand controller………..At that time I also ordered a 10inch f4.3 Newtonian System. When these instruments were completed Rob very kindly personally delivered the Mount, scope and equipment to my home, some distant away. Although the Newtonian mirror requires re-aluminising the PM 1 Mount still functions well, so I would be very interested to hear from anyone who acquired/ purchased one of Rob Miller's superbly engineered equatorial mounts complete with setting circles and regularly uses this gear.Clear skies to all….(rather hopeful statement ivo the appalling weather for the last month or two)OldTimer

Others may disagree. Your millage may vary. Void where prohibited by law.
