The orions seem to have a tripod mount on the bottom untill you hit the 4.5 starblaster then it doesn't

The meade ext seem like a good choice just they tend to be heavy its more the weight. More it weighs less i will use it. I can find targets easy just use an app on the phone pick one line it up and your bang on not doing photos just looking with my eyeball
