Quote:I have one of the original E Z Touch mounts that were made by AOK in Switzerland and were labeled as a W.O. EZ Touch.I also have a TV Gibraltar/ Losmandy G11/ EQ-5/ AZ3, and an Orion Versa Go III.The EZ Touch is without a doubt my most used mount.I have used it with an Antares 152, as well as my TMB130, Orion 110ED, and a C8.It's a great mount that has very smooth motions. With a C8 and a Meade 6.7 UWA eyepiece at 298X it is still easy to track the planets due to the very smooth bearings.One night I took my Antares 152 out to an observing site and forgot the counterweight. The EZ Touch had no problems with the 18lb ota with out the counterweight.In fact when just using my C8 or Orion 110ED F-7 I don't even bother with a counterweight anymore.Mine has a Vixen sadle on one side and Losmandy saddle on the other side.The EZ Touch is more stable and smoother than my TV Gibraltar.If this mount was lost or stolen, I'd get another one without even thinking about it.I just can't say enough good things about it.Steve
