2016 - Collapsible Mount and Altitude Bearings kit:

"Mount works perfectly, going from zero to slightly over 90 degress. Altitude movement is silk smooth; azimutal movement is firm and precise. Mount height and tube clearance were spot-on! There´s about one inch of clearance.

"Mark worked tirelessly with me on my mount project. I had many ideas for customization and changes that I wanted to make and he worked with me on every single aspect of it. He would not rest until I was satisfied and his attention to detail and commitment to his customers is truly amazing. Thank you again for everything you did, Mark. I am truly grateful and very happy with my mount.

2019 - Solid Mount with Altitude Bearings kit..

Here is Will's finished 10" SkyWatcher. He asked for the ground board to be completely under the rocker box, which makes it more compact for travel. Notice the offset mounting of the bearings and nice eyepiece holders inside the front board.

"I confirm that the tube now balances nicely. There is no problem collapsing the tube with the larger, offset bearings and show how much bulkier the stock mount is (the stock mount does result in the eyepiece being a few inches higher but the difference is not much, and I actually prefer it slightly lower for my usual chair).

Take care,

Will"

2018 - Solid Mount finished.

"Thanks Mark, you know I have never left the scope in the living room. The black wood mount just did not look living room worthy. Beyond functionality and weight, your mount looks great and I am happy to have in the room now. Will be sure to let folks know where it came from.

I know this is about the most simple mount you make, but it is still a great change for this scope and I am glad I finally did it. It is so much lighter, and a heck of a lot nicer than the standard mounts that come with these or any similar scope.

"Hi Mark:

The weather hasn’t been too great around here lately for observing, so I haven’t been out under the stars with the telescope, but I do have it operational now. Here are a few pictures I took today of the mount with the scope and finder installed.

Solid Mount with Clamshell Rings and Altitude Bearings finished.

Ron asked for a replacement for his 10" Orion mount, and a clamshell with bearings 6" to fit the 10" mount. Two telescopes one mount!

"Stand arrived this evening. Great job! Looks super, works great. The most amazing part is that it weighs 1/1,000th the weight of the original Orion stand!! Geez!! The real reason that I wanted the mount, so I could put my 6" to good use also. I had no mount for it before, now it looks good enough to sell. BUT - I won't!!" Ron DeAngelis
2019 - Big Bearings replacing 5" factory bearings kit.

"Was able to use the SkyWatcher Dob with the Big Bearings upgrade. Super smooth motions in alt. Very happy with the results so far.

"Finished the scope this. Thanks for your help. My 3 granddaughters and I painted out Zodiac signs on the scope and mounted the optics this weekend. Having your mount available made the job a lot easier for me.

2017 - Solid Mount with Clamshell Rings and Altitude Bearings kit.

"Hi Mark,

I just finished installing 3/4" wide by 1/16" thick white felt that I purchased from Duro-Felt. Paid $8.00 for a "close out item", shipping included. Good quality and good service. The clam shell closes completely now, and the tension seems about right. The telescope tube can be rotated with a little effort, but not too easily. The hose clamp is probably not needed, but I am going to leave it on for now. I have been using the telescope and it gives very nice views of Saturn at 175X from my light polluted back yard. It does a good job on the brighter M objects, and the Moon is outstanding!. Thank you for all your help with this project. I am happy to recommend your products and services.

Thank again.
