All mounts...all the time....
All telescopes are beautiful...but are useless unless riding on top of a proper mount.
Be they German Equatorial, Dobsonian, Forks or Alt-Az.....all do their job to support the OTAs in one manner or another. Some solid...some shaky and some with the smarts to show the Astronomer hidden wonders via G0-To computers.
Here, we will share our mounts - with our mods and alterations and improvements that help make visual and photographic observation better and more enjoyable.
