How heavy-duty a mount for 10" RC

Because of that I always thought RC's were very poor visual performers. There might be more that I am not aware of.

At any rate, it takes a bit of time to set up the tripod & mount because the individual parts have to be lugged out (I don't have it packaged very well for transport yet) and then set up, but it sure seems like stability will be fine.
RE AP vs. visual: I bought the mirror set for this scope years ago--before the Dob revolution had really hit its stride and I just do not have the time/interest/budget to do AP, but I do like to look! So, I'm finally getting around to completing the scope.
In the mean time, my C 102GT is solid as a rock on the iEQ45 also. So, I might have been satisfied with the iEQ30, but given that I immediately needed the CW shaft extension, probably a good thing to have gone w/ the heavier option. I just need to get the pieces parts set up for easier transport. (Trying to buy a long-skinny duffle bag, such as for the tripod turns out to be more difficult than I'd expected: if it's long enough, it's 18" in diameter! So I currently have a very floppy bag for the tripod legs.)
