A new portal tripod-based tracking mount

Looks interesting, competition to the Polarie etc.

No word on pricing that I can see.

So /that's/ what that is.

We saw a couple using one on the beach in Port Douglas and wondered what on earth it was.

Good find!

I was looking at these some time ago before I bought the Astrotrac, from memory they are over $1k!
