I really like this

This mount is great so far. The design appears to be very solid. The quality of this mount is apparent. I was able to acquire polar alignment very easily, and once I had it the thing stayed where it was supposed to. No jumping around if the mount is slightly bumped, no losing alignment when tightening the elevation and azimuth locks. AOK so far and I am a happy camper. Thanks OPT for another nice piece of kit and for the fast shipping!

Solid Alternative to Star Adventurer Base

As a beginner astrophotographer, I’ve used Sky Watcher Star Adventurer for nearly a year. For the cost (under $500), it’s certainly an adequate and portable equatorial tracking mount for astrophotography and time lapse. However, I’ve found its latitude base often frustrating to use when coming to polar alignment and stability. After one especially frustrating viewing session, I finally decided to spend the money (about $250, including tax & shipping) to buy the William Optics base, and I’m certainly glad I did. After using the WO base for about a week, I found it much more versatile and faster for polar alignment because it’s significantly more adjustable and stable compared to the Star Adventurer base. Bottom Line: Buying the William Optics base was certainly money well-spent. Highly recommend.

The WO mount is so much better then the Star Adventurer mount. Rock solid. Makes polar aligning so much easier and precise!

Built like a tank

This base exudes quality. Nothing cheap or low grade about it, this is top quality. Oversized knob, precision movement, no sharp corners or edges, and holds the tracker rock solid. If you are looking for a base that does exactly what its suppose to and does it perfectly so you can focus on capturing quality images without fussing with your setup, this is what you need.

An awesome upgrade for the Skyguider Pro

I purchased the base mount as an upgrade for my IOptron Skyguider Pro. The William Optics mount creates a more stable base for the star tracker and the adjustments make completing a polar alignment much easier and faster. I highly recommend this product.
