Round Table demise: Substitutes?
      #3291483 - 08/24/09 03:46 PM

Hi. I'm thinking of getting back into lunar/planetary imaging with my Orion XT12, so the first step will be the acquisition of a platform. Last night, when I went to the Round Table site, I discovered that they're going out of business.

Does anyone know of a similarly priced option? Tracking accuracy isn't all that important for the type of imaging I'll be doing-- as long as it can carry a 12" OTA.

Too bad about Round Table Platforms. I never heard anything but high praise for that company.

Yes its more money but I still have to suggest equatorial platforms...they are the best.
