One of my best astronomy purchases ever! March 7, 2017
Reviewer: Joseph Tocco from Waterford, MI United States  
With this simple mount I am able to produce impressive deep sky photos in a minimalist approach. Granted I won't be imaging tight to the Ring Nebula or any galaxies other than Orion but a rich-field view of the milky way is a hell of a lot of fun. I carry my Nikons and tripod everywhere and adding this small innocuous case to the bag turns me into a capable astrophotogaher. Landscape photos are a breeze with it but it's capable of much more. This fits easily in my carry-on bag when I travel and my 70-200mm medium telephoto is all I need.
