Here is the classic CGE Mount with a customized C14 Carbon Fiber OTA. The CGE moves around the C14 OTA very nicely.

That's a sweet rig there! The M tripod holding up the 1200 is amazing. And it can hold s much more... Joe

Here's my 900 with one of Yuri's creations on top. It doesn't quite require its own mountain but it's close.
