Parallax EQ mount HD200C
I have owned this mount for 2 years now; performance is comparable to an AP1200. It is beautiful in appearance; but the fit and finish is SLIGHTLY below the AP. Same AP goto system and in addition wonderful Byers 11.4" starmaster gearing on the RA and DEC. It autoguides like a dream. Only caviat is that I had to adjust the gear meshing slightly on both axis with a shim for perfect alignment.
