I bought this mount when they first came out, about 5 or 6 years ago. I have not used it very much, I am more of an Alt-Az mount Kind-Of-A-Guy. The mount has the optional polar alignment scope, Dual axis drive with control box, and battery pack. A word of caution, I threw out the flimsy legs shortly after setting it up for the first time, and the dog chewed the nice oak replacements I had made. Currently, the legs are steel conduit-type pipe that I have Macguyvered together. I ended up liking how light the were and never replaced them. I have adjusted the gears and drives extensively so everything works as smoothly and precisely as I can manage. I have also found a case for the mount(not the legs) foam cushioned and suprisingly compact. Please ask any questions, photo available upon request. Shipping within Continental U.S. included.
