EQM-35

Originally bought to hold my 4" F/9 tube; i foolishly thought an AZ GTI would work fulltime as my mount, luckily, i came to my senses and bought this mount instead.

Much more robust and stable.
I dont image so i can't say if it performs for that usuage well but visually it fully satisfies (even at ludicrous powers) with very quick dampening under a second with 14lbs on it.

Buying my new 62evolux which i plan to mount on my 4" F/9 (& G&G !) and that should max out its capabilities fitted out with my monster 2incher eyepieces.

If I was imaging I'd probably want a HEQ5 or EQ6R though.

Fully satisfies me and sleuthing the web there is an upgrade to a belt system if so inclined.

A value solution that is not so 'value' but more like great buying wisdom at an affordable price.

Astrophotographers should probably move onto a more robust platform for more consistent star shapes in my opinion.

AP is the MOUNT -not the scope !!

EQM-35 is not perfect but pretty darn close !

Highly recommended.
