I put my cap on the mount to give a feeling of its size.

Sedat, that's very cool! Does the AP 1100 work with an AP 900 sized pier?

I kinda of like the white GTO controller too ... as a change of pace. It has a hand written label on it, maybe a prototype of a next gen GTO? But as with all AP mounts, well crafted ...

> It has a hand written label on it,

It has an unreleased version of the controller software in it.... version "T". Version "S" had many changes to support APCC software. Version "T" must have new stuff probably for the high end options, the encoders etc.

Hey Sedat -
What was the price of the 1100 with and without encoders?

Cheers

Great pix Sedat, thanks for the gallery show. The size is still difficult to judge (despite the hat ), how would you describe it as compared to the EQ-6 Pro/Atlas? Larger? Smaller? Does it appear to have greater overall height? I am curious since I am considering replacing my observatory Atlas with the AP1100. Thanks!

Clear Skies,
Brian

Looks like AP is copying the iEQ45.

I will buy 1600GTO when I need a larger mount.

Why do you think it's nick named sweet sixteen? Check the following:

Mach1GTO - $ 141 per pound payload capacity
1100GTO - $ 80-85 per pound payload capacity
1600GTO - $ 53 per pound payload capacity
3600GTO - $ 66 per pound payload capacity

A weird way of looking at mounts for some... but 1600GTO is really sweet.

Mach1GTO is way out there on its own, showing that the market may be wide open for the competition (EQ8?) there.

The MEII comes in at ~$57 per pound of payload capacity ($50 if you purchased early).
