This question is for those only with a $2000 or less mount.
With so many posts here on CN of Folks receiving mounts that have QC issues, Firmware issues, Motor or Electronic board issues, Grease/Lubricant issues, Gear Mesh/Backlash issues... you Folks know the drill...
Has any one here ever bought a new mount ($2000 or less) that performed almost flawlessly out of the box when using it for Astrophotography? No hypertuning necessary. No major tear downs to replace or re-grease. Just maybe a few simple tweaks needed with an Allan wrench or Settings in the Hand Control.
Would enjoy hearing from those Folks who got lucky buying a new mount (not used) and what mount it was and their thoughts on if it performed well.
Is this EVEN possible with these mass produced mounts.
This might enlighten those Folks looking for a mount and or what headaches to expect when thinking of trying out Astrophotography (not visual) with mass produced mounts.
