            The tripod and drive were well packaged and apper to be very well made. The reviews I have read have been favorable and I expect that it should suit my needs for astro imaging. I have only gotten the mount and have not used it yet. My first impressions regarging the packing, design, and instructions has been very favorable.

                A well designed and constructed GEM; much bang for buck. I've been using it for about 4 mos. now. I was a DOB user prior and worried that there would be a steep learning curve; however, this mount proved easy to use. Nonetheless, there is plenty of capacity left to learn about with this mount. I had a problem with the hand-controller, but the tech support was excellent. They replaced it within days and I was back up and observing. My only complaint is with the counterweight bar. I suspect the designers shortened it to be able to store it within the mount when not in use (clever feature). I have problems balancing the mount with my gear. I'll have to purchase a bar extension to resolve it.

                  Comments about iOptron iEQ45 GoTo German Equatorial Mount:

                  Looked a mount for a long time to replace my CG5. Got this one by recommendation from a friend who owned the old version iEQ45. Polar alignment was very easy. Goto and tracking were excellent. Maybe I was lucky, but 12 arc sec PE was absolutely unexpected. I would not complain if this mount was only a push to for the price. Recommend it without any reservation.
