i ordered the astro-tech voygar 2 from astronomics the other day. sure hope i will be happy with it. ive had problems with mounts like this in the past not moving smooth enough. i plan on using it as a get and go with a celestron 6" sct on it. like the slow motion controls. maybe i will get lucky this time, sure hope so. thanks, don
