Anyone have one of these yet? Is it better than something like a CEM40?
I realize that I really need to eventually upgrade from the intro level EQ35M that I have... but with so many different mounts, and such WIDE price ranges it's hard to decide.
I'd really rather try to keep my mount cost at or below $2500.
I like that it has a load rating of about 44 pounds. What I REALLY like it is that it doesn't require a counterweight for 28 pounds and below (which my current equipment would comfortably fit into).
It also looks like it should be supported by both StellarMate and Astroberry.
