I have a 6" RC mounted on an Orion Sirius (EQG) mount. To keep the weight down I am guiding with a 50 mm 190mm fl guide scope, guided with a Meade DSI.
I have had good luck with the 50mm guide scope, but I am probably at the limit of what it can guide.
I can use my ST80 to guide with. Does anyone have an opinion of the mount capacity of the Sirius?
Would a 6" RC plus a ST80, DSLR (Canon Rebel) overwhelm this mount?
Anyone tried it?
