    I started looking at the SW or Orion AZ/EQ5 mounts and like the idea of AZ and EQ in one mount.

    Has anyone who was on this thread gotten one and started using it and what are your impressions?

    The slop that was mentioned, would SW "fix" it before shipping if asked?

    I might buy that mount for deep sky astrophotography with autoguiding. I wondered if other people had bought it in the meantime and what were their experiences. Thank you!
    Cheers
