When I was small,I always wanted to know where God lived

When I grew bigger I started to see the wonderous creations he made

....and today ,far away in South Africa,I became the proud owner of an AP 1200

...............and now I feel I can contribute properly to the site that drove me crazy with envy

No more wait

........too nervous to even open the boxes,

Any advice so welcome

Thanks George and Daleen

Hi Dr. Dave,



What you will really like about this mount is that once you've correctly set it up and gotten use to it you will forget that is there other than to admire how nicely it is built. It simply just does what it is told to do very well every time (unlike my kids).



I design machines for a living. I've always considered my design to be successful when the machine is used and ignored while it is working. With this mount I have been able to concentrate on all of the other complexities of astronomy such as imaging and video without having to worry if the mount will mess up again (unlike my previous mount).



Learn the polar alignment, sync and re-cal routines and the rest is easy. Once you get going with it you can get all the information you need from AP and this group.
