Re: New 400GTO Owner Question
Thanks for the reassurance. Yes, I need to get out under the skies
and put this baby through its paces. Just need that sliding bar.
Like I said, it looks to be a work of art, and it's obvious that
Roland and company take pride in what they do. I appreciate quality,
and that's why I've waited for the AP mount. My first impressions
are that this is a fine piece of equipment, that will serve me for
many, many years.
Regarding support from AP, I have communicated with Roland on several
occasions via private e-mail, and he has always been very helpful and
answered all my questions. Christine is the best. They are all
definitely first rate regarding support.
As far as there being posts reflecting issues that are either rare or
actually non-existent, well I have been there before. When I first
go the SkySensor for my Vixen SP mount, I saw posts on the user group
for that mount about how it wouldn't work, etc. I installed mine,
went out, and it worked like a charm. I did take the time to read
the manuals and install it accordingly.
Thanks, and clear and steady skies,

Orthogonality issues with A-P mounts are rare events... not unheardof -
just quite uncommon. Otherwise, people would not drool for twoyears
waiting to get one. (And try to find a used one for sale.)mounts, and
I do not for a moment make light of their plights nor do Ichallenge their
assessment of the cause of their problems. But keep in mindthat "listening
in" on any of these lists carries the same sort of learning curveas using
your equipment. Not everything we say in this forum is true. Itis not
that we lie, but sometimes we believe sincerely in things that justaren't
so. The more experience you gain on your own, the greater thevalue this
list becomes. So learn from it, but don't be frightened by whatyou read.
