Orion VergaGo 11 HD??????? new
      #4559040 - 05/03/11 12:44 PM

I've been looking for a alt-az mount and have been reading
tons of stuff about the Voyoger and the other two but don't hear too much about this mount. Goes up 63 inches and looks to have nice beefy legs not like the other three. I know it doesn't have slo-mo controls but that's not a issue for me, its how stable is the mount. It would be used for my Orion 100mm F/6 grab-n-go scope. Maybe some of you nice people who own this mount could please chime in.

I used one for my 120mm f/5. Worked very well. Slightly less stable on a 100mm f/9, probably due to the longer tube. It is very smooth: you can move it with one finger and it stays where you point it, except at the highest powers where you have to overshoot your target a bit because the scope will sag slightly. It is a little heavy for grab-and-go but it works for me. I'm glad I bought it.
