Stumbled on this yesterday
http://www.skywatche...unt-s21300.html
Even as a camera base for shooting panoramas its reasonably priced.

Does anyone know much about it ? I have two specific questions:

(a) it looks like it has a dovetail adapter; if so is that compatible with the Vixen dovetail rails ?

(b) how large a scope could it sensibly carry ?

While they offer it with a 90mm Mak, I'm wondering about a short 102mm ED refractor at about 5 lbs; that it can't reach the zenith (obviously) isn't a huge problem IMHO.
