      Hi Rob
      I'm not sure if this is the best way to contact you but I'll give it a try. I left a replay on your 2 year old entry on your Discmounts setup. I've been thinking about one of these for my Televue Renaissance (the 101 with brass OTA), it weighs in at 6.4kgs. I think the DM-4 could handle it but would like to hear what you have to say. I haven't been able to find out what additional costs are involved in importing from the States. Can you advise me here? Your setup looks the business. Very nice.
      Look forward to hearing from you.
