5 of 5 An Unexpected but Impressive Improvement! June 30, 2021
Reviewer: Jack Allen from Denver  
The addition of the encoders dramatically improved the smoothness of movement in both axis.  The mount from the factory has the central axis of both movements secured with a steel nut.  That nut secures the pivoting head and becomes a bearing surface.  With this kit that nut is replaced with a larger diameter brass extension.  The brass extension then becomes the bearing surface and it is far smoother than the original design.  My larger scope is a ST120 with a Moonlite focuser and that combination pushes the weight limits of this mount - prior to the upgrade there was always a bit of slop and movement - not any more - smooth as silk - no slop or movement has developed after a 3 weeks of use - Oh and the encoders...actually I don't know yet - I have been so excited with the improvement in the mounts movement that I haven't even plugged the encoders into the DSC unit yet...
