Lew,

I've experimented with a lot of equipment over the last few years and typically found that you get what you pay for. Probably the only partial exception to that being the Atlas mounts which for medium focal lengths have given me very good performance. I purchased the AP900 mount because I got a great deal on one and since I was putting in a permanent observatory and wanted a higher capacity mount for side by side mounting of deep sky imaging and planetary imaging setups as well as higher resolution deep sky work for planetary nebs etc. Otherwise, the Atlas mount performed quite well with the FSQ.

Practice at home and then take advantage of those dark sites; you'll find a couple hours at a dark site will vastly outdo a couple days or more at your light polluted site.

I sent you a private message regarding AAAP to answer your question.
