Satisfactory for PST
The mount is well made and I am overall satisfied with using it for my PST.

I only gave it 4 stars because the mounting bolt is a little bit "short," and is just able to secure the PST with the Astrozap Accessory Caddy. Just a bit longer and I'd be happier.

The amount of "travel" for the slow motions is a bit limited, and I find I must "re-position" the mount and scope fairly often, or the slow motion is out of range of travel.

At another site I read lots of criticism for this mount with people who were trying to use it for binoculars when viewing well above the horizon. I think that their expectations were too high. That said, for binoculars, one doesn't need slow motions and the Celestron Photo Video tripod (which I also own) would be more satisfactory for binoculars, although one will not be able to look easily above 60 degrees.

Good for price. The mount stops working very well around 80 degrees alt and up, but still very usable at this price. I use it with a 102mm f/5 scope, it handles the weight fine.

Questions & Answers

Product Questions

Is this compatible with a dovetail?
Would this mount be suffient to use as a grab'n'go with a skywatcher 127 Mak? For those nights when I want a quick view rather set up the heq5 pro?
Is there an altitude lock somewhere on this mount? I took it out for the first time tonight with a 90mm Mak. Using the slow motion control, I could barely point much above horizontal. I can live with the limited slow motion altitude movement if there is another way to get large movement in altitude. If not, this tripod is useless for astronomy and I want to return it to OPT. Please advise. Thanks.
would this tripod work with an Astro master 130 ?
Will a celestron 70mm work on this Mount
