Like the Starquest mount itself, the RA drive is well designed. Easy to fit and to use, too. My only problem is nothing to do with the drive itself, it's just that the extra weight means I now can't achieve balance with my heavier eyepieces on the 130mm scope. No problem with the lighter Skymax 102 though.

Installation was easy in theory, but I somehow managed to unscrew the locking ring. Took a few minutes but I got it back on without crossing the threads.
When switched on, it's almost silent. Looked through the scope to confirm it definitely moves. Just waiting for a clear night to finally get some better planetary photos.
Took about 3 days to dispatch which was unfortunate but arrived in good condition

i bought this drive to fit the Starquest 130p I recently bought from FLO, I have to say what a great piece of kit it really is, it takes just a few mins to install, all tools reguired come with the drive, the one thing that annoys me with my 8" dob is keeping your target centred in the field of view when other members of the family want to take a look, i wont have to worry about that now, i suspect the Dob will take a back seat to the 130p and 102mak now ive got this little RA drive, Many thanks to FLO for their usual great service.
