    Default Paring Mount and Scope Opininos wanted



    Looking at getting the Sky Watcher S20510 Star Adventure Astro Pack and paring it with either the Sky Watcher S11500 Mak-Cas 90mm or the
    S11510 Mak-Cas 102 mm to keep within the 11 pound limit of the mount. It has WiFi SynScan computerized and quite light weight.
    What do you think a Go or NO Go Looking for computerized mount and a light telescope that is portable and easy to use . Getting tired of lugging the big scopes around .

    Thanks

    It will work with a small telescope but it cannot be overly long as these mounts are designed for use as a camera mount.
    It should work with a Mak for visual.

    thing in some balance of perspective. Apos are awesome, but long focus Achros aren't that far behind them - Siriusandthepup (CN)

    Refractors kick arse precisely because they don't hide behind excuses. That is, they have no obstructions to hide behind. - Jon Isaacs (CN)
