Mount arrived

LOOOOVE the 12v option I didn't know about

No way would I mount a decent scope on the supplied mount though it is one of the worst I have had, about as solid as a jelly, using EQ5 legs

Short video just shows how bad it is, 26Gb so if slow internet avoid it

Glad you're happy with it. I just added the name of the mount in the title of the thread so others can find if they search.
