I am considering this mount for EAA using a lightweight 72mm at 332mm effective focal length and using a guidescope (if necessary for this focal length + mount capabilities). Total load will be 9 pounds max.
I have read both good and bad stuff for this mount, especially for the "regular" version (not the +) which used plastic parts for the worm assembly. However, I am keenly interested as this mount is way lighter than my Celestron AVX and can be transported and set up VERY easily.
Feedback from users would be most appreciated, pros & cons, any mods done to improve the mount (forget about the tripod, I will use another one). Thanks!
