Great Mount with a little hiccup

I am very pleased with the mount and it has truly impressed me with its overall performance for such a small package. It can handle the weight it says but you must be aware that altitude balance is very critical. In this case, I have found that it is better to be slightly objective heavy and then use “gronk” (that means a lot of) torque on the altitude lock and counter weight bar lock. This will reduce any altitude slip, which appears to be the only weakness in this mount when used for its intended purposes and weight class. With a little trimming of the foam that came with the mount, it fits nicely in a Nanuk 935 case with room to spare. So if you are looking for an ultra portable rig for your visual viewing pleasure, look no further!

AZ Pro not so Pro

Rated for 33 pounds of load and can easily move that load but can’t hold it in place. The altitude clutch doesn’t do the job for a refractor since every little touch or focus adjustment slip the scope out of alignment. Read the forums before buy, it is a design flaw. Another flaw is the way it attaches to the Tri-Pier, so difficult if you have big hands. I did have high expectations with it and I think that for a $1k instrument, it is unacceptable. As always, OPT received the mount back and refunded me. You never loose with OPT.

Ioptron AZ Mount Pro

This is a fantastic mount for visual use. Self contained with WiFi, battery and GPS, this mount is extremely accurate with its gotos and tracking is impeccable. Setup is quick and hassle free. Handles my 20lb. Refractor with ease.
