I know this thread existed a while back, but its dead and gone so it needs to come back BIG TIME!!
Nothing against the other "Mount Picture Thread" stickied to the top, but there are only so many ways to se a GEQ

So lets see your Unistar, Discmount, T-Rex, Voyager.. you name it! Post it even if its some home-made rig. I love these kinds of threads! Thats probably why I start them

Still have mine with an Argo and encoders added. It rocks. Next to get the encoders and an Argo is my Voyager. You can't have too many toys.

I want one exactly like that one. I've been looking for some time for a dual alt-az with Losmandy dovetails - are they still made, and how to get one in Australia ?

I notice the APM website doesn't show that configuration, and I'm not sufficiently fluent in German to figure out what they say.

Wow! Thanks for the great thread..especially Matty! I have been toying with getting a grab'n go mount for those iffy evenings when the clouds cannot make up their minds or I want to wander around the backyard to avoid tree blockage to get better views...espcially things right on the horizon or even tossing a small refractor into the car for a quick run to less blocked skies!(yes, I need a chainsaw as part of my kit ) There are alot of good ideas here! Thanks for the great pictures!
