Hi All, I have the possibility of getting a TGM-1 mount. I already have an FSQ-106 mounted on an EM-200. Would the TGM-1 be enough to support my other FS-60 as a guide or 2nd imaging scope? Or should I try getting a TGM-2 instead?

Clear skies,
Giorgio

Hi,

TGM-1 is more than sufficient for FS-60. I use TGM-1 to hold a Vixen FL70S and a Starfish guiding CCD on my TOA150. It works very well.

This is my setup:
