Is anyone using the Sky-Watcher HEQ5 SynScan GPS mount?

I'm looking for a robust mount that will take me from my newbie scope ZenithStar 70mm to something larger as my skills evolve. The specs say this mount can hold up to 13.7kg/30lbs.

I like the fact that it also works with Southern Stars Skyfi and I can control it with my iPad.

We have one here, love it. It started it's life carrying a williams 80, and now has a williams 110 on it, with ccd and filter wheel.

Ours will be going up for sale real soon, not because we dont like it, but the telescope just got another upgrade, and the TOA-130 is definitely to big for the mount. We also have the EQ6-Pro from skywatcher, and it'll be the mount that carries the 130 for us.
