We had a choice between the Paramount ME and the AP1200. Paramount required 48 volts and wouldn't image past the meridian, which I think is absolutely silly. Plus the payloads for both mounts are similar.
AP1200 has the nice GOTO controller, Paramount a joystick. I'd rather use the GOTO controller, plus it's easy enough for the rest of my crew to use. AP1200 you can power off a single 12 volt battery - I'm using an Optima deep cycle.
Plus you can disassemble the AP1200 in two different pieces for possible field usage with a dedicated pier. Can't do that with the paramount.
So, for us it was hands down the AP1200.
