I am not sure if this is a good idea, but I thought I would make this suggestion.  I just ran across a post on CloudyNights about the EXOS 2 PMC-Eight mount from a vendor talking about the performance of the EXOS 2 mount compared to a SkyWatcher EQ6... Here is the link to the thread

If anyone cares to comment on his statements I would appreciate it. I am forbidden from responding and as a vendor he should not be making statements about other vendor's products either based on the terms of service for vendors.

Anyway, I thought I would make this suggestion. Thanks
