"I found Tom Peters performance claims to be completely borne out. This is simply a superb mount."-Tom Trusock Cloudy Nights Reviews (cloudynights) on the DM-6 mount.
*The DM-6 does not require balancing every time an eyepiece is changed. You can remove that low power, wide field, two-pound eyepiece, and insert that high power, two-ounce eyepiece without the telescope moving.
*When taking nature pictures you can remove the eyepiece and insert most cameras without losing your subject.
*The DM-6 is so smooth that using high power is a pleasure, and not a chore.
