  1. Hi thanks for the replys At the moment I may well go for the AZgti from flo optics,I see on there site its a 1-2 day delivery for the mount and basic tripod and up to 60 day wait for the Sky-Watcher 3/8" Stainless Steel Tripod. So before i order the mount and tripod and waiting time for delivery will the mount fit on my EQ2 mount tripod while I wait for the Sky-Watcher 3/8" Stainless Steel Tripod. Many thanks P.S have been looking also at the DSV-1 where could this be purchased from in the U.K
