Should I buy this?

Recommended Posts

Hello! I would like to know what about buying this mount. But first a bit of a backstory: Recently I found a 60/700 mm refractor all broken up forgotten in the basement. I managed to repair it (it only needs a diagonal and a finder) but noticed that its mount is irreparably damaged. So I set sail on the internet in search of a cheap mount and found this. I thought this is a pretty good price for a guided mount and it seemed almost too good to be true so I came here to ask you what you think. Thanks!

It's "tracking" but not "goto". I had the "goto" version until recently and it was absolutely fine. I got rid of it because I bought a heavier telescope.

I _think_ the only difference between it and the goto version is the handset. Goto would require the full SynScan handset.

Cheers, Magnus
