I like to see Burgess come up with a good Alt-Az mount package for the scope too. I have read several good reviews about the APM GR-2 deluxe but none of the dealers offer a package. It gets expensive when you have to source rings, mounting plates and a tripod from different sources. The last time I priced a tripod/GR2 package for my 6 in refractor the total came to well over $1,000. If Orion can offer the heavy duty Atlas EQ mount for $799 someone should be able to offer a decent Alt az mount that doesn't cost three times the price of the OTA.
