Dream is an authorized dealer of Software Bisque's Paramount ME

"I have owned a half dozen meade mounts. Including the LX-10 and the LX-50 which was marketed as an astrophoto sturdy mount. Then there was the LX-200 and LX-200 GPS and the LXD75. All I can say is that after looking at all the money I spent on Meade over the years and wondering why I could still not take an astrophoto without tinkering all night. I realized I could buy a Paramount with all that dough. Which I did. I am very pleased with the Paramount. Last night I started an astrophoto as soon as the sun went down and went to help my buddy who owns an LX-200. Seems he had tracking errors. My Paramount has given me back something very precious. My time. Now I can spend those priceless moments under the stars with my friends. Thanks Paramount."

"PROMPT would not be up and running without the Paramount line of mounts. When UNC first got into the small-telescope remote observing business about 6 years ago we tried out another manufacturer's mounts. They were in no way adequate for the high-precision pointing and tracking we needed. We quickly changed to a Paramount GT-1100s, and they, along with the (Paramount) ME's have served us extremely well.

Without the Paramounts, we would have to get our mounts custom-built for a much larger expense, so much so that the cost would likely be prohibitive for this size of project."
