 Looking at the photos, are the housings/pillar mountings made of 3d printed plastic? I would be fine with this approach for a Star Adventurer class of mount, not so sure if hanging  50 kg of astro kit off it.
 

Which bit are you referring to as 3D printed…?

Well, they do exist, as people have got them and are using them now, also some reviews from users on the io group…so not strictly true….👍🏻

Very few have them and many more are still waiting... How many reviews of owners of those mounts have popped up?

Yes they're not vapourware as some would think,

Yes, I bought one for my second observatory...so far so good, I'm still testing I have some very promising guide graphs and am getting used the software. Hopefully if things continue like this I will have some images done soon. I am looking forward to the encoder module upgrade so that I can test the dual tracking option....fingers crossed it continues.

If all those grey bits are machined from aluminium billets, (I can’t see any welds), then it is indeed very competitively priced.

They are…that’s shown on the website…and in the FB group page….👍🏻

To me it looks like a military version of a Mesu 200, and the image with them all lined up looks quite threatening😆

Yes, they do look like a line of tanks rolling off the production line. I think the photo is shouting “Look! We’ve made more than one!”

I learned many years ago not to buy vapourware, or be an early adopter.

As a mentor once told me, "Never be first and never volunteer."  😉
