Re: New Skywatcher Solarquest mount

Sorry I’m late responding to this.
I have been using this mount for about six months with an L bracket carrying a PST and a shelyak spectrograph.
It works perfectly every time, automatically finds and tracks the sun, and with a metal L bracket holds up the payload very securely.

Hey guys. I removed the arguing posts. There’s no place for that here.
Cloudy Nights has much better arguing so take it over there. :)

No, I dont want any private messages explaining who’s fault it is, just be nice. We’re all professionals and academics here.

Thank you very much to the very small amount of donors from the Solar chat forum for helping us make our goal in this year’s fundraiser.
We raised $15,720 in 30 days and this will keep the program going for at least another six months.
