Mini Tower compared to Sky View Pro with Go To
Posted 18 September 2009 - 10:20 AM
I am in the final stages of either upgrading my Sky View Pro Mount by adding the Go To application, 500 bucks.
Purchasing a iOptron Mini Tower, 800 bucks.
What I don't know is how the two systems compare. Any help, observations and opinions are appreciated.
Have a great day!

I have been reading a lot today and one post mentioned this one....
I compared the pricing and it beat the "normal" competition by about $100. I even called customer service at the one site that has best buy guarantee and they said they could not touch it for this price.
With shipping Order total: $638.40
Can someone confirm this is the same CG5? If this is the one Luigi mentioned then I think I am sold.
I appreciate everyones help. I am going to use the Orion Mak/Cas 150mm for this mount. I was thinking of upgrading my SVP mount but this seems a bit too good to pass up if it is the same unit.

I really appreciate your help. Your input led to my pushing the button on this mount and I also feel like I saved quite a bit of money using High Point Scientific.
