Excellent
Only one outing so far, but this mount is far above the quality of my first iEQ mount (the iEQ45 "early series").
Both axes are silky-smooth and easily balanced
I had no problem doing 5 minute subframes with autoguiding while imaging with my WO GT81 unreduced .
Also, the mount is quieter than any mount I have ever owned!
It was also nice that the counterwieght extension bar is included, though with the WO 50mm guider and finderscope and Atik420C camera accessories attached, it was not needed. I am curious to see how it handles weights closer to its stated limit.
First impression is very good.
