The guys at FLO recommended this mount when I asked about a grab and go mount for my Skywatcher Equinox 100 ED. The Equinox is quite a beast as grab and go scopes go so it had to have something honestly capable of it. First off the Porta Mount II is a beautifully made item nothing cheapo about it and although it's fairly lightweight it's as solid as you'd like. I'm really chuffed with it with a few caveats the slo-mo controls are really small and lightweight and too short for my refractor. I've replaced them with some skywatcher ones (£17.50) that the guys at FLO also recommended perfect! and for my big old scope I've also got a set of Celestron anti vibration pads as I will be doing some high magnification planetary viewing and they will cut down the wobbles when focussing, this is to be expected with an f/9 scope at over 200x I think you'll agree. Overall I'm delighted and I'd also like to just say that the buying experience with FLO is great and I love the site with the wish list and ask a question choices. I promise that FLO has not made this up if that's what you may think credit where it's due.
