- May 2, 2001Well, I've inaugurated my new GT-ONE HD mount this evening and I have to
say; it performs wonderfully. It arrive yesterday and I set it up right
away only to notice a cosmetic blemish on the mount head. Needless to say
after spending $4000.00, I was a little bummed. I told Herb about it and he
relayed it to William and inside 12 hours arrangements were made to take
care of it.
I have to tell you that I am a very happy customer and both Herb (and all
the gang) and William (and his gang) mean what they say as far as making it
right. I will come back again and again. Thanks Herb and William.
As far as the mount goes, pointing is the only thing I've tried so far and
it is phenomenal. I've owned a 12" LX 200 and the Sky Sensor in conjunction
with the GT is far superior. It's carrying a C-14 with a Tak FS 102
(occasionally) piggy backed as well as an imaging load and it just purrs
along. Very solid and quick image stability when the scope or pier are
rapped. Total damping in about 1.5 seconds.
Finally my mount looks as stocky as the C-14. One word comes to mind
I will post images and PE calculations take from the mount toward the end of
