Keith1 Posted September 22, 2016 Share Posted September 22, 2016 Hello, I am in the market for a better mount and having done the usual research, I have shortlisted the Paramount MX+ as a potential candidate. I currently have a CGEM so this would be a significant upgrade. My CGEM has ben very reliable over the 5 or so years that I have had this but I have now upgraded my optics and now use a QSI camera which have all added weight. The CGEM is rated at around 19Kg and I estimate that I am currently running at 22Kg give or take a couple. As expected, the mount is struggling to guide for much more than 3-5 minutes before star trailing and I would really like to push this further to 20mins or so. I considered the paramount MYT but I would already be at the limit of this mount hence the MX+ many posts on the forums relate to problems being encountered and assistance in resolving these. Likewise, the Software Bisque forum also appears to follow this same approach, which is totally understandable. What I was wondering is what users of these mounts think about their equipment. Are they reliable? Do they need to be serviced regularly - if so how often and how difficult is it? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
