Quote: 3) Losmandy GM8. This is very expensive compared to the CG5 and HEQ5, but it looks smaller than the EQ6 Pro, and seems to be considerably lighter as well (about half the weight according the manufacturers specs). I am not too bothered about having GOTO to be honest, but the tracking would be good, and I like the sound of being able to manually push it without having to disengage the drives.
