I may soon have the 8" OTA off my Meade LX90 that will need a mount. I am weighing my options at this point. I want to retain go-to and prefer an AltAz mount. Has anyone any experience with a scope this size on the MiniTower? Too much for this mount?

I use my Celestron C8 with the Mini Tower with no weight issues.
