Great mount that will not let you down.
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.
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.
The mount works very well but we haven’t used it that much yet. Delivery was faster than we anticipated.
the Sky-Watcher product line is amazing. Quality craftsmanship and excellent service from OPT
