Atlas vs. Sirius - Height dimensions w/o tripod?
Posted 20 March 2011 - 12:50 PM
I'm trying to figure out the height dimensions difference between the Atlas (EQ6 Pro) and Sirius (EQ5 Pro) mounts. I thinking about replacing my Sirius mount with an Atlas mount in my observatory. My Sirus mount is currently mounted on a pier and there is little tolerance between the rolling roof and the telescopes. I believe the Atlas is bigger (and taller) but I don't know by how much. Does anybody know? I've tried to look in the web but there is very little informationa about it.
Thanks for your help,

Could you change the park position of your scope when you close up the observatory? You might get some extra headroom that way.
