UA Heavy Duty Deluxe Alt/Az with Wood Surveyor's T

For those interested in an affordable yet very satisfactory Alt/Az mount, the Universal Astronomics Hvy Duty Deluxe should fit the bill.

Lightweight, portable, attractive, and simply functional. A real joy to use, and a solid mount with a 30 lb. load rate.

I am currently using a Tak FS102 and have no problem whatsoever. It is even becoming easier to use every time that I take it out.

If you are interested, take a look at the article just posted under Alt/Az.

Hi Steve,

Nice review! I've been using Larry's mounts for quite a while now, having received one of the very first Unistar Lights. I now have the regular Unistar, the Unistar Light, and a Microstar. I use them all on Bogen tripods because I like having the ability to crank up the center post for viewing at or near zenith. I added encoders and a DSC to the Unistar and it's a real pleasure to use.
