Absolutely no disrespect intended. I responded to the image stating how beautiful it is and, because, I have read so much about Mach 2 mounts I decided to just send a picture of my Mach 1 and, unfortunately, I had to send the image twice. I am sorry if you are offended.

Yes that is an old Van Slyke multi turret eyepiece holder.

God bless and stay safe,

Jim Phillips

I know it's unintentional but can we please show some respect for Steven and his superb image and open a new thread if you want to talk about somebody else's gear instead of his image?

Hi, Jim:

 

Is that an eyepiece turret from the late great Van Slyke Engineering?

Here’s my Mach 1 with AP 130 F/8.35 ready to go after double stars. I’ve had the Mach1 for many many years and it has never failed me.

I really like the feature which allows moving the meridian, eliminating the need for a meridian flip. It worked out well last night.
