      I must confest, I didnt use it on a EQ mount, instead I usid for an ep platform I made for a heavy telescope. The Polaris drive did the job well but after a few hours of work the gear worn out, because of the extra stress. I Think if its used in an EQ1 o EQ2 mount it could last. Any ways, Its well made, has a lot of torque and you can controll the speed very well.
