Quote:It's been about two months since I've been obsessed with this hobby. I've been having a blast with my Vixen GP2 mount, star hopping is fun. But now I would like a goto mount(easy set up), possibly some astrophotography.I saw the ioptron mini tower and it seems like it's very easy to set up and possible to take 30seconds to a min exposure photos. I wanna know what the major differences are in between Mini Tower and Mini Tower ll besides 5 lbs capacity weight.Mini Tower: http://www.telescopes.com/telescope-accessories/mounts-and-tripods/ioptronminitowergotoaltazimuthmount.cfm Mini Tower ll: http://www.telescopes.com/telescope-accessories/mounts-and-tripods/ioptronminitoweriigotoaltazimuthmount.cfm I have a Explore Scientific Comet Hunter(152mm Mak. Newt), it says the tube assembly weights 15lbs. That's not including all the standard accessories right? Would this scope be ok on Minitower 25lbs load cap?Thank you in advance
