This mount was purchased in hopes of “Bartelizing” it into a goto system; however, I found it too small for my 8” SCT. The mount has brass worm gears, dual motors, and controller along with an accessory tray. It appears relatively solid and worked well during a test run with my SCT, but a lot of counterweights were needed and the motors were just too weak. This solid mount looks like it would be a good match for a smaller scope – 10-15lbs. I also just came upon a web site that deals with rebuilding the mount for better accuracy, although Astromart will not allow URL's in ads. You can either search on Google, or I can email it to you if you are interested. $200 plus shipping.
