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.
