Sturdy, well made, and feature rich The mount hasn't had first light yet, but first impressions are good. It's sturdy, and will meet all my needs (observing and getting into astrophotography). Note that a power supply isn't included. Delivery was amazingly quick, and my request for advice yielded useful hints. Highly recommended. (12/05/2020) Dave - Fife
New mount for a bit of Astrophotography Bought this an upgrade to my existing Alt/Az mount with the intention of doing some astrophotography. Ordered Saturday evening and arrived Tuesday. Good communication and updates from Harrison telescopes. Tripod and mount all look sturdy and well built. Straight forward to put together and setup. (01/11/2019) Dave - Maidstone
