Well I have to say I’m more than impressed with my experience with Jason and Astrotroniks. Firstly Jason communicated with me every step of the way from receiving the mount to shipping it back via emails and telephone calls. You just don’t see this level of service anymore.

As far as the Performance Tuning goes, one word, WOW! The first thing I noticed was how smooth it rotated about both axis. I noticed during balancing how more sensitive the mount was to counter weight movement. Before it was so stiff that I’d move the weight 1 inch and the mount wouldn’t move. Now I move the weights a millimeter and it moves, which means I can balance my Atlas much more precisely now than before.

As far as the actual performance figures go, the Performance Tuning reduced my PE by +50%. This was verified thru the Pre/Post data Analysis option I purchased.

I have to thank Jason and Astrotroniks for saving me a lot of money by not having to buy a “more precise” mount and for making astrophotography more enjoyable.

The Atlas mount is a very good mount it just needs a little help and Astrotroniks Performance Tuning is the way to go.

Thanks Jason and all at Astrotroniks,
