I use a DiscMount 4 and love it. The nicest "feature" about this mount is how dead steady it is. I can focus at 300x without shake. I can even leave my hand on the focus knob and there is no shake. I can whack the tripod leg pretty strongly, and there is a tiny amount of shake that dies out immediately. It is zen simple.

Locoman -

Which has the beefier mount, the Sky Watcher or the VersaGo II? I'm considering the VersaGo II for the C102 GT that's on sale at OPT right now.

Regards,

Karl
