/ Mount for celestron c6
Mount for celestron c6
August 23, 2009 2:47 PM
Im looking for an alt/azu mount for a schmidt cassegrain celestron c6.
The weight of the mount is most important to me. Second is that it cant be to expensive. What would be a good choice?

Welcome to CN GuuZ,
Define "too expensive", everyone has a different definition, what's yours?
I'd suggest the AT Voyager, for me it's almost perfect for traveling and quick viewing with my C6.
Mark C11, C6, APM/TMB115, and AT80ED - Pier mounted CGE in a POD, and CG-5A, WO EZ-Touch and AT Voyager 25x100s and 8x56s, T-Mount Light, Mark 1 eyeballs - 350Da, DSI-P, SPC900, NexImage, Mallincam
Just because you can doesn't necessarily mean that you should

thats close to my price range
I was thinking about around 200 euro max
Thats 200 x 1,3 = $270
The first at voyager i found was $299
