New mount for TAL 200K: Synta EQ6

Last week I got a new mount for the TAL 200K. Problem with the old mount was, that with high magnifications of more than 200x focussing became more difficult (much too wobbly). The EQ6 can take the 11-kilo TAL OTA easily. It can carry up to 22kg. The first lunar

images shot with a 10mm lanthanum (200x) look very promising. Here are a few pics of the mount, and the first lunar image:
