Im looking for an alt/azu mount for a schmidt cassegrain celestron c6.

The weight of the mount is most important to me. Second is that it cant be to expensive. What would be a good choice?

Welcome to CN GuuZ,

Define "too expensive", everyone has a different definition, what's yours?

I'd suggest the AT Voyager, for me it's almost perfect for traveling and quick viewing with my C6.

Thanks Mark!

thats close to my price range
I was thinking about around 200 euro max

Thats 200 x 1,3 = $270

The first at voyager i found was $299

Een Vixen Super Polaris is perfect!
