Well built

It's solid. The adjustment between the azimuth and the upright is a hexagon shape within the casting so when bolted down the interface is very rigid. The fine adjusts work as expected. Very pleased.

A Great Mount and Great Customer Service!

I purchased this mount and I have it set up and ready to use (as soon as the clouds clear up)! It was easy to install and was even better quality than expected. I had one minor issue, which was that some paint had dripped into the screw holes on the dovetail clamp during the manufacturing process. I reached out to SVBONY and got a response quickly. I was able to remove the excess paint by putting a little rubbing alcohol on the set screws, and then worked them in. SVBONY assured me that if I had any problems, they would make it right for me. So far I've set it up with a 114mm Newtonian and an 8" SCT (each for visual observing only). Each is sturdy with minimal to no vibrations. My only recommendation is to make sure you have an appropriate tripod to support the weight of the mount and your OTA...

the best AZ mount on the market

This Svbony mount is actually an improved and better than twilight, because it has 2 safety screws instead of just one, it has a handle bar and it has 3 bars on the side arm instead of just two. I think it is the best AZ mount on the market right now.

Good unit at a fair price

Easy to install, very flexible design to accommodate my weird scope. Love it. Tighten the control screws real good or the kids will yank the handle off too easily.

One Problem...Otherwise perfect

I got my SV225 this week. Upon assembly I found that the lower arm connected to the base has way too much play, I would say at least by half a centimeter and I have the bolt tightened as tight as it will get. It is very annoying when pointing to my desired target, because I have to account for the movement. It would seem I received one that got past quality control, and now I will have to figure out how to remedy this. Otherwise, it is a very solid mount able to hold by AT80ED with RACI, two inch diagonal, and my favorite 25mm eyepiece very well. I have all this mounted on a Orion Paragon HD tripod and it is rock solid, except, the aforementioned problem. Even though I am experiencing the one issue with the mount I would definitely recommend it to anyone that ask, but also warn them about my issues.

Just What I Wanted

Just received my SV225 yesterday. I have it mounted on a Orion Paragon HD tripod. Set it up in the daylight with my AT80ED fully configured with RACI two Inch diagonal and my favorite 25mm eyepiece. It holds everything nicely and is very sturdy. The craftsmanship is really good. It could be excellent, but there is a lot of play in the arm at the base as it is not a snug fit, and moves back and forth about half a centimeter in the altitude axis, even though I have the bolt as tight as it will go. I'll have to DIY a fix for this. All movements are very smooth. I would recommend in spite of the one flaw in mine.

Excellent Features & Smooth Performance

Well designed and constructed, this mount feels rock solid. I especially like the smooth & silky resistance feeling on the slow motion controls and clutch. Its size and 10kg capacity give me confidence that my visual telescope set-up is stable and safe. The vixen clamp design is not my favorite choice, but it has triple lock security (works well) and can be interchanged if you like. Overall, I am very pleased with this mount. It`s a good value, like most SVBony products! I also reviewed this product in detail on my YouTube site at "Astrophotography Japan".
