I bought this mount for my Short Tube 80 refractor Telescope . It is a very sturdy and stable mount. Even with my T2i DSLR attached to the telescope.

Would recommend:  yes

I'm using this mount with a C90 Mak. I leave it in my garage and bring it out on clear nights. For experimenting with lunar photography, it provides a very sturdy, predictable, mount (far more enjoyable than the shaky camera tripods I used to use).

Pros:  Solid tripod. slow motion controls smooth
Cons:  setting rings useless
Would recommend:  yes

Walleye wrote:

I use this mount with a 5 in short tube refractor. (127 Explore Scientific.) Nice Ballance between portability and mass. Setting rings are cheezy, but never intended to use them with this set up. Any more scope than this would need more mount.

I wanted an easy, run out of the house and set it up in the driveway tripod. I have a computerized tripod for my sct6 scope and at times it too time comsuming for a quick look at the moon or planets. With this tripod it easy to use and my c90 also works well with it.

Pros:  Sturdy and incredibly stable mount. I have not seen this level of quality for the price.
Cons:  None worth mentioning.
Would recommend:  yes

I purchased a new Vixen E80MF refractor for cheap and I wanted a sturdy mount that was reliable but not as expensive as the Vixen. --One that would support a larger telescope in the near future. I couldn't be happier. The Vixen dovetail drops right onto the Omni and locks down. For a few hundred bucks total I got a totally righteous combination. It's a sharp looking system too. The mount is smooth as silk with zero play. The tripod is steel tubing and the heavy center tray locks the three legs into position via a large threaded rod. The rod passes up through the tripod and locks down the base of the mount. I think I will go ahead and purchase the R. A. motor for it.

Author: Flygirl Terra (verified customer) , I have owned numerous telescopes and have been in the hobby since I was a kid (over 40 yrs ago)., from Southgate, Kentucky on Aug 25, 2011
Pros:  Excellent value, very stable, smooth motions
Cons:  Heavy (but that's really a good thing- it's not so easily moved when set up but it is very stable.
Would recommend:  yes

I bought this mount for my 102 mm long focus (F11) refractor. The OTA weighs over 12 pounds and with 2 inch diagonal, guide scope, 2 inch eyepiece, etc. its weight is closer to 15 pounds. Moreover, the tube is well over 40 inches in length with dewcap extended, focuser and diagonal, so it produces a good bit of torque. This mount easily manages it's payload. It is rock steady and vibrations damp down in a second or two. All in all it is very stable. The slow motions are also very smooth and the axis locks hold well. I am very pleased. I previously had a Vixen Great Polaris Mount on an aluminum Vixen HAL tripod. The Omni mount as steel legs nearly 2 inches in diameter. It is so much steadier. The only downside is the weight of the complete setup. It is beyond me if I need to move it more than a couple of feet unless I take off the OTA (easy with the vixen dovetail) and the 11 pounds of counterweights (also easy). The mount arrived well packed in one big box with three smaller ones inside. ...
