Another Harmonic Mount on the way

Can't wait for some real world user reviews on these mounts ... I've sold a load of my gear to fund one as my back can't handle the heq5 and C8 any more !

Leaning towards the Ioptron HEM27 but really need to see some reviews.

The Nyx looks to be a Gem45 competitor (20kg class) while the HEM27 is more like a Gem28. In the latter case another £600 or so to gain 0.8kg. Real world performance will be the decider for me. But interesting developments across the board.

these do fascinate me, it's really hard to get my head round no counterweight

First light optics have had 7 of the HEM 27 with Ipolar in stock for a while now ... no sales yet ...

I suspect It's because nobody want's or needs the Ipolar but Ioptron are trying to force sell them by releasing the kit first 😞
