I've got an AT6M on backorder and was wondering if the Voyager would handle the 13.4lbs OTA. Thanks

Yes, especially with a heavier tripod and anti vibration pads.

I'd also look into some of the Manny Miles Voyager mods, they make the Voyager an even better mount.

I agree, changed the legs to GTO wood on my Voyager and they improved it's performance.
