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.

Q1. Are flexible slo-mo control cables provided with the basic mount option?
