Not much you can say...it works!
I have a Celestron 9.25 SCT on the AVX mount. I often place it gently (never throw) in the back of the car (good for that as it can break down into 3 bits) so I can head off into the Fens, up to Norwich Astro Soc' Seething site, or to Cambridge which of course means changing locations.
I just attache it, and set the menu to recieve from it on the handset and then forget about it.
It certainly simplifies the alignment."
