Is the 11" EdgeHD to heavy for the CGEM if it is to be used for video imaging. The cameras are not much heavier that sme EPs.

That is what I am using now. Makes for the max portable mount scope combo to me.

I don't image, but I use a side by side plate with a C11 and AT106 on my CGEM all the time and it is fairly stable as long as it is not windy. That is probably a lot more weight than a C11 and a camera.

That is for sure! Aperture is King.
But the 9.25 is no slouch. :grin:
