The William Optics ***** Style Base Mount for SkyGuider Pro is a solidly built base, with smoothly functioning mechanisms that will help speed up polar alignment and facilitate a higher degree of accuracy than is possible with the OEM SkyGuider Pro mount. Although I think this base is overpriced and I can't say it's a great value since it's so expensive, it's a very useful piece of equipment.
I purchased the William Optics (WO) base mount as an upgrade to the mount that came with my Skywatcher Star Adventurer (SA). I use the WO mount in conjunction with the ASIair Pro to dial in my polar alignment (PA). The combination of the two is simply a delight to work with. The WO mount provides much more control over the fine adjustments necessary to get a precise PA than the Star Adventurer mount ever could. The WO base mount is more expensive than the SA, but it is decidedly worth the price difference.
If you have an Ioptron StarGuider or the Star Adventurer than you need this! Do yourself a favor and make your life easier. Buy it!
We’ll made and easy to use.
This is a huge improvement over the stock Star Adventurer mount. Would give it 6 stars if I could!!!!
