This is an incredible mount for tracking the sun. It is specifically designed for looking at the sun with a small refractor and white light filter or small H Alpha scope up to 60mm or so.

Here’s how it works: level the tripod and put your scope on the dove tail. Using double A’s or a power pack of some sort, power the mount on. The mount levels the scope, gets a GPS reading and then slews to the sun. It took exactly 2 minutes and the sun was dead centered in a 25mm eyepiece. It tracked the sun for over an hour and it never wavered. Plus, it has a “sync” feature for when it isn’t dead on, you can make an adjustment and do a sync so the alignment is recalibrated.
