Re: 3600GTO - El Capitan unveiled at AIC

Good guess Jerry,

I see you must have been a fan of the "6 Million Dollar Man" TV series
where he cost 6 Megabucks, but his dog Maxamillion ... only a megabuck. But, I
see that you can be right - it will be interesting. I just hope you aren't
putting prices in Roland's head, prematurely, or it will be a self fulfilling
prophecy :-)

I'm betting 15K for the mount alone.
Roland is still keeping that a secret, huh?
15K for that mount?

You are going to be sadly disappointed.

Meade sells their big mount for that $30K, surely an AP mount must be
worth, I would guess, 2-3 times that much.

The Takahashi EM-2500 Temma-2 Mount with a 155 lb. load capacity is $46K.

If you base it solely on the relationship between the mount number
and the price of a fully equipped mount (counterweights, dovetail,
etc)... AP900 is about 9K, AP1200 about 12K, then the price would be
about 36K for the 3600 mount... I'm betting more.

Let's get up a pool and maybe Roland will give a free one as a prize
to the one who guesses correctly!
