Seeking mount suggestions for TV85
Posted 31 March 2009 - 02:37 PM
1) William Optics EZ Touch. This will give the option to mount a second scope alongside the TV85 (although I'm unlikely to need this feature). Also, I ahve a mad idea that I might just be within limits for mounting my Celestron 9.25" SCT on there (although I'm not sure about it to be honest...). No slow motion controls.
2) Vixen Porta. Small and neat, just the thing to go with the TV85. The slow motion controls would undoubtledly be very useful for high power viewing I guess.
3) Astro-Tech Voyager. Pretty much the same features as the Vixen Porta, unless there's something I haven't thought about?
So, I'd be really grateful if anyone with any of these mounts and a TV85 could give some feedback on hwo they perform together.
I know there are other options for a simple alt-az, but these are relatively easily available here in the UK. The Tele Vue range of mounts look OK, but they are much more expensive. But are there others I should look at?

Are you any good at woodworking?
Sadly, I'm not very good at things like that .
