Will my EQ-3 mount hold a C-8 or a Meade LDX55 8" OTA? I should add my scope is a Orion Starmax 127MM...its the EQ-3 GEM that came with it,it is very very stable with the 127MM on it.............

Thanks for any advice,

i had the 127 and eq-3 and it was a nice match but the meade or celestron 8"sct ota might be a little too much for that mount. i have a meade 8"sct and a celestron cg-5 and its very stable. don
