William Optics EZTouch: Next in a series of ultimates?

Venus Optics Imager Tripod
By Richard Hennig 7/4/2006
Focusing a DSLR or a webcam is a challenge and required a lot of patience when you use the aluminum tripod that comes with many mounts. When a friend of mine, Alex Choy, told me that he started designing and manufacturing a replacement tripod for the GP mount and its clones, I jumped at the opportunity and asked him to send me one to replace my aluminum tripod and to test it for astrophotography.

A new contender on the Alt-Az block!

So you hear about a new mount; then you hear one of the only ones shipped out has been sent back. Do you still go out and buy one? I did!!

TeleVue Panoramic Mount

LXD650 Bang for Buck or Bust?
By Don Joski 8/26/2005
There was a buzz on astro sites that Meade outlet was selling a LXD650/102ED package that included a goto computer for $1,000 less than Meade dealers. Interesting I thought. I had just sold a C9.25 and GM8. Could I possibly go from a big scope to a little scope? No way, that is, unless the little scope's mount could carry a big scope. I posted a question in the forum - can the LXD650 handle a 9.25" SCT? I got a couple of replies. Both said it would carry a C9.25, better than a GM8, and might even handle an 11" SCT. Sold.

Comparing The CI-700 and G-11 Tripods
By Clayton Cramer 3/28/2005
The CI-700 and G-11 tripods, at first glance, are quite similar. A side-by-side comparison quickly demonstrates the superiority of the G-11--but the CI-700, at its current market price, is still something of a bargain for upgrading GM-8 mounts.
