  1. I tend to agree with you re: the aluminum tripod being a really weak link. I had an EQ3-2 mount once that was fitted with an HEQ5 tripod (1.75" steel tubed) and it was like a different mount altogether. It carried a 120mm F/8.3 refractor well for visual observing whereas it was jelly-like with the alu tripod.

     

    A nice hardwood tripod is even better but I guess it's too much to expect mass-production mounts to be supplied with those !
