    Default Astro-Tech 10"



    I'm looking to get something in the 10-12" range for visual and photography use, and what I'm seeing about the Astro-Tech 10" (with feather-touch focuser) looks really good.

    I would need a hefty mount for it, so I'm thinking about the CGE Pro.

    Does anyone have experience with this scope? Would you recommend a different mount? What did you pick for a finder scope?

    Thanks for the advice!
    - Dave

    I have an 8" Astro-Tech RC and I am happy with it. I run it on a Orion Atlas EQ-G goto mount. The RC comes with both a Vixen and Losmandy style mounting bracket. I am going to convert my Atlas to Losmandy fairly soon.
