Quote:The issue I have with the suggestions above is the cost. It would be a WHOLE lot cheaper to get an LX80 which should be able to handle the 5" easily. It does GOTO, it is compatible with Sky Safari/iPad, and also tracks the object after you find it. Of course getting your hands on an LX80 is a little problematic.
Quote:I am now looking for a decent Alt/Az that i can slap some encoders on (i do love my tech now) but simple aided pointing with slowmo control... no need for goto or nogo for visual...
Quote:The DM-4 looks good, but really want/need those slomo controls... won't accept anything less at that price but i will say this much, absolutely loooove that T-Rex, looks like a killer mount!
