    Great lightweight go-to tracking mount

    Are you looking for something portable and lightweight? Are you iffy about the camera trackers because they only track on one axis? This mount is what you should buy. Not only can you track on 2 axis, but it has go-to functionality. That means less time manually finding and centering your target for more imaging time on your night out. It's very beginner friendly. The mount is much smaller than it appears in the picture so you'll know you have something you can backpack and carry. Oh and I forgot you won't need to hook it to a power source or lug around a heavy marine battery (though you can if you want) because it takes 8 AA batteries to last you through the night. As a camera tracker it works like a dream and also does well with small widefield refractors in the 74mm and below range (aperture). Polar alignment is easy and apple users get a nice polar alignment app that helps assist you on where to center Polaris. Now not everything is perfect and this is merely my opinion but I only have 2 problems with this mount but it's not a deal breaker. The illuminated polar scope can not seem to be shut off but only dim so make sure you don't lose that tiny front cap for the polar scope or your mount will have a bright red light shining in front of it. My other problem is with meridian flip. If you're just tracking a camera you really won't need it but unfortunately you cannot shut off meridian flip. You can only adjust when it does flip which means if you're not plate solving you'll have to set an alarm to check your mount and make sure it flipped properly and has your target centered. So you may lose some sleep if that's a big deal to you. Other than that it's an all around great mount for traveling and most impressive at the results you get camera tracking. It's also good for visual astronomy for outreach events and also fun sized so if your kid wants to learn Astrophotography they'll have a kid sized mount to join you with. Tell em Kurt sent ya

    I've bought this mount for portable (air) travel purpose, and so far it more than meets my expectations. I am a bit puzzled by recommendation to align the polar finder for it to be perfectly orthogonal inside the axis (since most senior mounts have that procedure factory preinstalled), but apart from that everything seems to be OK for such a small ang lighweight computerized GoTo mount. It seems to me, competitors of this mount will not emerge anytime soon!
