    Default New EQ7 Mount



    Looks like a new mount is coming out from Sky Watcher. EQ7 with a 45 kilo payload capacity plus a bunch of other goodies. Kind of wish I held off on buying the Atlas if I knew about this one coming out.

    Jason--

    Hey! Use that Atlas to mount your DSLR!

    The EQ-7 looks like it has much larger worms. What do you think? (I want one!)
