    Well after much debate and searching I have decided on the CEM60 mount without EC. I have the pier adapter coming this week along with the adapter for the Polemaster. So hopefully order the mount by WED. and also order the SV70T for widefield.

    Right on!  I think Trevor over at http://www.astrobackyard.com uses that mount as well.  It was a toss up for me between that and the G11.  I went with the G11 and am really pleased.  It guides flawlessly.  .05 arcseconds

    I’ll be eager to see it set up.  How much did you spend

    Got a temp plate and hooked it all up. All is running through SGPRO. I put the TSA120 on and got it balanced and skewed it around. Awesome!!!

    That’s looking really good.  I have pretty much the same setup with Losmandy

    Either way it’s better than Atlas or NEQ6

    Thanks. I am hoping to get the pier base poured this weekend and get the pier mounted later in the week in the roll off.
