Sky Adventurer vs iOptron Sky Guider

Has anyone compared these two side by side to see which is the better of the two?

Has anyone ever used either of these trackers and what can you say about them?

I really like my Star Adventurer, it's so small and lightweight and it tracks well if polar alignment is good.
That iOptron looks good too, perhaps a bit bigger than the SA and obviously takes a higher payload.

If I was buying now I would definitely be looking these two - so good that there's some great options at this size/price now days!

You might find some value in this review I did, but check the fine print at the bottom too:


iOptron performance gets a mention at one point too.
