I'm pretty much decided to get a Losmandy GM811 for my APM 152ed. Any other mounts which don't require unlocking an axis to move and stay tracking? The Losmandy mount may simply be pushed and keeps on tracking.

Bette get the G11 for that big scope and a 12" pier extender.

Actually the GM811G will do fine with that scope. Though for visual I would suggest getting the HD tripod, keeping the legs fully retracted, and as Chas said get the pier extension. AP just keep the legs retracted.
