Quote:This is in the title.For the momment I own a M12 OTA installed on a modified EQ6 (bearing replaced and small gears too).This is decent visually, tracking is hold well with a out balance of say just a kg. Stability in small winds remains problematic.Which EQ mount can be selected in order to get say a step above for stability, tracking and out of balance ability?Thanks for your experience and observations about.I found possible the IEQ45, the CGEM-DX and the G11.Not actually convinced by the G11 with the aluminium geared wheel.Jean
Quote:The scope is a M12 sct for visual and planetary ccd up to 30s set.You may add a due shield protection as well a camera and a small spectro.I donot want to modify constinuously the balancing of the mount (to-day the eq6 can absorb a small out of balance up to 1kg) making also continuous re-collimation (M12 keeps its) or re-center object into the field of view (eq6 not too bad on this point).Here is the situation to improve, being just at the limit with the eq6.

Quote: I will see an alter D6 mount that some UK retailers are proposing a little more expensive but rugged for 100lbs with no goto.
Quote:For visiting a UK retailer, I have just to cross the channel and to to go to Widescreen in London, they have one at the store>Personnally I own a TAL mount, this is rugged sharp and efficient> Easy to perform a maintenance> I replaced the synchronous motor in AD axis with one more powerful of 5watts>This is a kind of truck now>Said like this, effectively this shall be examined carefully with 3000£ investment.I am located near Paris.
