  • I saw this mount recently on the Astro Pete's website and ordered one.

    This is a brand new model and I could not find a video review of it online so decided to make one for the benefit of others interested in this mount.

    Questions, comments and constructive criticism are always welcome.

    If you are a Flat Earther and you just want to post insults please don't waste your time as I will delete your comment from this video. Post it elsewhere on my channel as this video has nothing to do with Flat Earth.

    I think most of us are old enough to remember when such things were the stuff of dreams. I got my first GoTo telescope back in 2002. It was one of the hottest things going at the time, and now they're so commonplace they're being made for cameras. Cameras with sensor sizes and zoom capabilities almost unheard of even five years ago. We live in amazing times. (I'm sure they thought the same thing in the 1880s with electric lighting, too.)

    +John Michaelson - I have not seen your PM yet John,  I will take look - I seem to only get notifications for about 5% of the comments and PMs received.

    I sent you a PM through Youtube here, Wolfie. Don't know if you saw it or not.I can thank them for getting me out to corners of the state I've never been to, and for the P900. I wouldn't have had one for the eclipse I'm sure.

    Hey Wolfie,Nice equipment. You should point out to our FE friends that this is what an education allows one to do in life -- afford nice things rather than scrap about for crumbs and beg for patron donations to fund their miserable lives. Well done as usual.Just curious, if you were to tell the mount to find the moon during a time when it is hidden from view by the earth such as near noon when it is near full at night, does the mount point the camera downward toward the earth or does it just stop ...

    +George Hnatiuk "These people are profoundly undereducated to the point of being idiots"This my impression as well. I'm just not sure how much of it is their own fault. I often have a hard time believing, they believe the things they say. I've often asked questions like this one:*You might not realize you're really bad at geometry and math but you don't think you're good at it do you?*This question usually goes unanswered. If a reply is given it's to call me a shill.I can understand th...

    Soundly,They will become aware of your work if you title it properly. Put Flat Earth in the title and it will draw those you want to reach. You do not have to go on an FE hangout to do so. When you go on an FE hangout, they will later twist your words and discredit you. Nothing is to be gained by these appearances. You hurt efforts of the rest of us by going on FE these hangouts. I respectfully disagree with you.Look at what happened after your appearance on Globebusters and all the effort you p...

    Many thanks for posting this. I have just bought one of these mounts (the software seems to have changed slightly) and in the absence of any really useful WiFi instructions from Skywatcher, your lucid presentation has proved most enlightening. Thanks! <}:-)

    Keep up the good work Wolfie. I post all your videos in the flat earth groups.

    Hi thanks for the information can't make up my mind which to get this one are the solar one any tips many thanks friend 👍

    Ok thanks. I have the p900. So it works with the sky watcher star discovery goto mount and tripod I will look up on it thanks for your time👍

    +Suedehead. I am 50/50 on the Solar one too as it would be great to have something that I can leave all day knowing it will keep the Sun centred. Looking at the design though it won't work with my normal L bracket for the P900 as it will point 90 degrees of from the Solar Sensor. That is my only hesitation at the moment. The standard one is excellent though and even better if you counterweight it as I have been doing lately.

    Ha. Got the same mount. Drawing a camera bracket right now :p

    Wolfie here's the idea I mentioned to you a while back. You thoughts please.https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipP3EAd7eRkGxMowYuygeGlojbHA140NcU95mknwv-UsvirwMgJoJBHYadlWwVykbw/photo/AF1QipMe0xmHBJNWXNKYE_pZVRevuqFgXgzCDzvDlrxo?key=SlJrSVZ3QU9HcUVqT0RIUkxUa09RQmlacmlkRVh3

    Don't bother me I'm still watching the vid :p LOLSeriously, I jumped in too quick. I have Star Discovery Mount. Just completed the camera mount bracket drawing and now about to do the CAM tool paths. Then a chunk of Ally goes in the milling vice and chips will fly. I've had the mount for some time but just been too busy. The aim is to do vids of ISS Solar and Lunar transits etc. Moon rises and sets etc. I'm sure you've seen some of the amazing vids on YT. They got me inspired. Lunar occultations of st...

    Who the hell thumbs-down a video as informative and innocuous as this?/r

    Nice unit, thanks for sharing.

    +Rethink Everything - thanks, it really is much easier to transport. I was testing it last night and it works great on the Sun and Moon.

    Excellent video. Just got back from the European Astrofest in London where I bought this on impulse. Your video saved me reading the manual and reassured me I made the right choice. Also, I got a great show price discount as well. Cheers, thanks for sharing.
