They are certainly asking a bit of money for them, competing with a few other mount companies at that cost. Hope it is better than the mounts of the past.

Should we be concerned about tracking errors in that the guide scope is not attached to the imaging optical tube? The way I understood the add, the mount has an instrament capacity of 90 pounds, seems like it would take a pretty robust setup (rings/dovetail)to avoid flexure...At that price, it seems like a a good contender for the CGE Pro.

It is what it is...
