A new contender on the Alt-Az block!

A new contender on the Alt-Az block!

So you hear about a new mount; then you hear one of the only ones shipped out has been sent back. Do you still go out and buy one? I did!!

Hi Morris, I'm so glad to see someone proclaiming how GREAT the Desert Sky Alt Az mounts are. It's now 2019 and I just got a DSP-1 for my Televue 76. ROCK STEADY - yet smooth as butter. Doesn't move AT ALL when switching from heavy to light eyepieces (or light to heavy) The ULTIMATE grab and go mount - just throw it on a sturdy tripod and you are good to go !!
