The real question is whether you really want to run the small image scale that you'd have w/ the DSLR on the Mewlon (@ native FL). I bin X2 (w/ a monochrome cam) when imaging on the Mewlon, to keep the scale up to a manageable value (0.9"/pix). This allows reasonable exposures in 5 or 10 minutes.

Hi will an AP 600E mount handle a Mewlon 250 for visual observing and "light" imaging? I have no plans to piggyback anything on my Mewlon, I may do some prime focus / short exposure imaging (1 min or less) with my modified Canon 300D, but it's not my primary objective.
I had my M250 on a Tak EM200 and it was a very good match for visual. I think the 600E would be fine as well.

The 600 is a great mount, but make sure you have a solid pier or set of legs with that load.
