Mounting curiosity

I need to get a new medium duty equatorial mount that will be pier mounted and used mostly for ccd imaging. I've rounded up the following suspects: HGM Titan, EM200, MI-250, and CGE but I have no personal knowledge of any of these mounts; You people do. Could you share your reccomendations or additions to the list with me?
Thank you,

I have the MI 250 and it's a great mount.. I used it for ccd imaging with about 50 lbs on it without any problems.

The EM200 Temma (goto) is also very good ... it's lighter and more portable and can carry about 35 lbs for imaging.

don't know about the Titan aor CGE.
