Due to bad weather I have not been able to use it. The mount is very well build. It carries my Williams Optic GT 81 with reducer, A ZWO ASI 017MC Pro camera, Pegasus focuser, Guide scope as well as an Eagle 3 computer without counter weights with no problems. I definitely recommend this mount as the perfect travel rig. I had to wait quite a long time for it. But thanks to Angel at OPT the mount arrived in time for my 4 month trip out west.
