Quote:I recall reading some criticism of the Porta II's tripod being vibration prone, and that the Vixen Star Guy was an improvement. The specs of the Star Guy (operating height, load capacity, weight) seem similar to the ES I but at $100 more.I was curious why you want an alt-az mount since your scope came w/ an Orion Astroview EQ mount.
