OK. I have an 80mm F/11 OTA I need to mount. I will be working at the power limits most of the time (170x-250x) so stability a must. Also, like everyone, don't want to break the bank either.

I was looking at the TeleVue/Vixen porta mount, also the Universal brand seemed interesting, and understand WO has an offering with their EZ Touch. So all seem to be in the $300-$500 range.

Anyone have any experience? Looking for most stable with shortest dampening time. Encoder capability not wanted.
