I have a GP-DX at the moment but would like something a little beefier BUT not much heavier.

The Atlas/EQ6 is too heavy for my back.

It's to hold a 5" F/8 refractor.

Would welcome suggestions.

What about the Tak EM 200? It weighs a bit less than the CGEM but has the same carryng capacity. At 15 kg, I think it's lighter than the Atlas.
