I loved the idea of having a relatively small, light mount that could function in EQ, AltAz, and carry two OTAs. I only have one issue with the EQ5, but it's a big one (keep in mind I have not used the mount in EQ mode yet): the RA and DEC clutches (plastic circles, not levers) do not tighten enough to prevent inadvertent movement of my scopes when configured in AltAz. This is true even with a small refractor that I own (Orion ED80T.... Less than half the weight of the listed max payload). With anything approaching max payload, this mount simply scares the hell out of me because of the OTA swifting all over the place when I apply the slightest pressure in any direction.
I am really bummed... I really wanted to love this mount especially for the price. Not sure what to do with it now.
