This is the mount other Alt-Az mounts want to be when they grow up smiley

Specifications includes an 80.0 mm diameter 7075 aluminium wheel gear, a brass worm gear in adjustable worm block and high quality ball bearings used throughout. Load capacity is an impressive 15-20 kg each side. 

Features included adjustable friction clutches on both axis and 360 degree slow-motion controls.  Both slow motion controls remain in alignment with the observer at all times.

Only good things to say about this mount... superbly engineered, being smooth and precise in operation. A very versatile and capable mount for the visual observer.

This is a really nice mount. Not cheap by any means but the quality of the engineering is plain to see. I have only had a short session with the mount and I have not tried the Nexus unit yet, but to say I am very happy with it so far is an understatement. Again thanks are due to FLO for their excellent service.

Extremely well made alt/az mount, the build quality is 2nd to none. I have a few alt/az mounts and this is easily the best of the bunch. I have it on the berlebach uni-28 and it is a perfect match. The nexus dsc system is so simple to use and very accurate, I would highly recommend getting the nexus with this mount.
