As for your comment on the workhorse well Iíd like to one day be able to take up the challenge of servicing the mount. It looks like a daunting task but hats off to you for maintaining it. The belt mod is something I have on the things to do list one of these days.

The Losmandy mounts have very few moving parts so are easy to strip and maintain. I believe skywatchers EQs are more of a challenge but when you've done it once I think it gets easier. Understanding what's under the hood with your mount also helps greatly in tuning it and get results.
