I have bought quite a few items from Astronomics and can say that I have not had one problem with them.Friendly and helpful and if you are a member of cloudy nights website (free to sign up) they give you a discount on any purchase

Entry: Astronomy:Equipment Reviews:Misc Accessories:Markless Astronomics-MCW15

Goofing around in the dark was tending to get old as with trying to find the right combo with the weights to achieve balance. Their had to be another solution.
Researching the web really only showed 2 systems and some homebuilt stuff. Since I have already invested quite a bit in my scope and did not want the hassle of building one myself, I ordered the Markless Astronomics system
Charlie Starks is the owner and is very prompt to reply to any question. Building it (All are custom built) and shipping took no time at all. Fit and finish are top notch,professionally built and only three screws hold it to your mirror box.
I have the Servo cat Jr. version on my scope and before had a little slippage with the heavier stuff but now I can go to wherever I want with a Paracorr and 17mm Nagler or Seibert Blacknight bino's or whatever I want to use.
No problems anywhere.
Consider the Markless system if you can afford it and I am sure you will not regret it

Entry: Astronomy:Equipment Reviews:Misc Accessories:Argo Navis dtc

Compared to the only other dsc I have owned (Lumicon) I found the Argo works fantastic. Living in the crappy bubble of light from Chicago I find that a lot of the stars are washed out so a dsc was needed for my dob. The Argo uses a firmware with user programmable list that I find fantastic and all upgrades are free.Objects are always in the field of view with a 17mm nagler on a 14.5" f4.3 reflector
Highly recommend

Best low power eyepiece for a 14.5" f4.3 reflector, had the 31mm Nagler but because of it's weight I use this eyepiece much more
