By Richard Keppler 6/15/2011

Turbocharging the Losmandy G11: 3.5 arc seconds peak to peak
By Greg Nowell 6/24/2008
Ovision's new aftermarket worm makes almost any new or used G11 competitive with mounts at 3x the price in most imaging applications. The flexibility in configurations (servo go-to, stepper systems, manual or digital setting circles), snazzy aftermarket options such as the Berlebach tripod, and a large user base keep this model suprisingly flexible. The Ovision aftermarket worm may vault this well-known mount into a top-contender in its weight class for high performance imaging applications.

The Takahashi Teegul Alt-azimuth Mount is also a RA/Dec mount!
By Jim Buchanan 6/16/2007
The precision and build of the Teegul mount are typical Takahashi, yet we astronomers have still found a way to make it better. I have come up with one more way to increase its usefulness.
