Currently paired with my Takahashi refractor and the mount is totally capable of handling the load of the telescope and any normal accessories. Vibrations are practically non-existent and the tracking is so smooth.
I love this mount. It's easy to set up uper stable when paired with my refractor and the vibrations are practically non-existent. It's the perfect combination of lightweight but strong. The only issue I found was that you may need heavier counterweights if your scope is more than 4 1/2 pounds.
I'm very pleased with this purchase! My scope easily mounts on it and the tripod is super sturdy. Quick shipping and arrived exactly as I'd hoped
