There are no good vibrations when it comes to a mount. My experience with several weeks of trying to deal with noise and vibrations boil down to a simple modification you can do in 15 minutes!

Turbocharging the Losmandy G11: 3.5 arc seconds peak to peak

Turbocharging the Losmandy G11: 3.5 arc seconds peak to peak

Ovision's new aftermarket worm makes almost any new or used G11 competitive with mounts at 3x the price in most imaging applications. The flexibility in configurations (servo go-to, stepper systems, manual or digital setting circles), snazzy aftermarket options such as the Berlebach tripod, and a large user base keep this model suprisingly flexible. The Ovision aftermarket worm may vault this well-known mount into a top-contender in its weight class for high performance imaging applications.

Just Enjoying The Sky.

The Takahashi Teegul Alt-azimuth Mount is also a RA/Dec mount!

The Takahashi Teegul Alt-azimuth Mount is also a RA/Dec mount!

The precision and build of the Teegul mount are typical Takahashi, yet we astronomers have still found a way to make it better. I have come up with one more way to increase its usefulness.
