"I have the 1200GTO
on a Losmandy tripod because
The 1200GTO is attached
to the tripod using a special adapter plate I had machined locally. Last
year, I took both scopes, the mount and tripod, to New Mexico and Arizona
for six weeks.
I stayed at 4 different astronomy inns, and took lots of pictures with my CCD camera. There is no other mount that will do what the 1200GTO does while remaining portable and relatively affordable."
