Both looks good and both use Manny mounts.

The Portamount is currently on back order.

Thanks! :grin:

I have a voyager that my TV85 rides on very nicely even without MM's mods. I did get an AT eyepiece tray for it and swapped out the original tripod for a CG5 tripod. Easy to slew in all directions as it is and with the upgraded tripod it's firmly planted on the ground with the EP at a higher position. The TV85 can be rotated in the ring to keep the focuser in the normal position.

Not here: Porta II at OPT

I called OPT and verified they have them in stock.
