I LOVE my current mount but I had a WO Z73 and just got a AT102edl and I know I may be pushing the limits of my mount but the one night that I had to test wasn't that bad. Is there any decent mounts just above mine that are under 2k?

I would like to keep the total weight down as well. Is this just not an option? I'm not stuck on a brand other than would rather pass on anything from Celestron and like to just plug the mount into my pc's usb and roll smile.gif

I "like" the SW EQ6 but it gains a lot of weigh over my iEQ30. Is there no other "upgrades" that don't weigh a ton? I just carry my fully assembled rig 15' out the door so I REALLY don't want to have to disassemble the thing for that short of a distance. As I said, My mount has been great so I can live with it but just checking on what I might have been missing.
