Re: Which to Choose; Absolute Encoders or 92 mm Stowaway
I have one of the older Mach 1s which I love and is still performing wonderfully. I too have wished as with my AP 900 and 1200 it could be broken down into two pieces.

Sorry to pick up this old thread, but I will wholeheartedly cast a vote for being able to split the Mach 2 into separate pieces.
When I image from the backyard I need to carry all my equipment up about 8-9' of stairs. I found that it is doable with the Mach1, but the 42 lb. weight of the Mach 2 has me a little worried. I'm not a big guy, and have had a minor knee surgery and three major hip surgeries (last one just 10 days ago), with the prospect of a few more down the line. Anything towards reducing the Mach2 mount weight is music to my ears.
