I purchased the William Optics (WO) base mount as an upgrade to the mount that came with my Skywatcher Star Adventurer (SA). I use the WO mount in conjunction with the ASIair Pro to dial in my polar alignment (PA). The combination of the two is simply a delight to work with. The WO mount provides much more control over the fine adjustments necessary to get a precise PA than the Star Adventurer mount ever could. The WO base mount is more expensive than the SA, but it is decidedly worth the price difference.
If you have an Ioptron StarGuider or the Star Adventurer than you need this! Do yourself a favor and make your life easier. Buy it!
We’ll made and easy to use.
This is a huge improvement over the stock Star Adventurer mount. Would give it 6 stars if I could!!!!
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!
