Giro-Ercole - Giro-FLM
Posted 21 December 2012 - 06:43 PM
I have a 5" astronomy refractor. It weighs about 10kg.
I know Giro 3 or Ercole mount can move my refractor very smooth even at high power.
I´ve seen Giro-FLM can take 10 kg as maximum charge.
Could Giro-FLM carry and move my refractor as easy and smooth as Giro-Ercole mount?

For terestrical use the mount will work very well with maximum charge, but for astronomical use were the head will move to the zenith you will have a disequilibrium.
Then my answer has been replied, the best option is Ercole.
For a small refractor, like a Tele Vue 85 I don´t know if Giro-FLM works perfectly in astronomical use.
