Yes the ES mount is the same, but Explore Scientific was able to sell me just the arm. I should be getting it the same time my new SD card arrives so I can take pictures once again. It's nice that ES was able to support me even though the original purchase wasn't from them.

I have been using the mount because I made an arm out of plank of Trex decking. Looks goofy but is solid. Will take pictures once the camera is working again.

Also have been testing out all alt az mounts I can get my hands on. Voyager mount is out - not sure why it has so much slop in the gears (both). You have to turn the knob 120 degrees or so before any motion starts. Real pain in the butt when you are finally at your object and want to center it.
