My difficult journey

I have only had a couple of nights when the weather was clear, so I can’t give a complete report, but so far, I am very pleased with this mount. I practiced using the USB/computer interface inside before I went outside, and had no problems. I had already installed the ASCOM platform and PHD. When I used it outside, I went back and forth between the handbox and computer, and that presented absolutely no problems. Then the clouds came out, and I went back inside. I hope to have more opportunities soon. This mount is very capable, and hauls my 8” Meade SCT with DSLR and eyepiece projection very easily. I don’t expect any problems adding my 120 ZWO to the lineup, and continuing on into deep space.

Definitely worth the money, a fantastic mount

Used this several nights in a row and started out at 9 pm ET using my dedicated astrophotography camera, next thing you know I'm packing up around 6:30 am ET. I love this mount, very sound and OPT delivery was right on time, no damages! Thank you OPT!

Great Mount

I'll admit, this is my first Go-To mount and I am just getting into astrophotography. I'll say that so far, this mount has been great, feels solid, quiet operation, lots of videos online to help with questions due to its popularity. I am looking forward to getting out there a bit more and get some more time with it under my belt.

Great equipment!

The mount works very well but we haven’t used it that much yet. Delivery was faster than we anticipated.
