The main advantages of this mount are ease of use, portability and light weight. Perfect for grab-and-go observing with small, light telescopes.
Stability is roughly the same as the Porta mount with aluminium tripod, but the APP-TL130 tripod is easier to move around despite being slightly heavier.
Stability is acceptable with a small refractor like the A80mf (f/11.3) or typical 80 mm ED (f/7.5-ish) scopes. Stability is however completely unacceptable with ED100 f/9 scopes despite being within rated weight limits.
