Quote:The advertised Paramount MX payload is for imaging. Software Bisque does not over estimate the carrying capacity of their mounts.
Quote:I think the AP900 breaks down into 30lb and 15 pound components (give or take). If 25lb is a hard NEVER EXCEED limit, you might be pushing it.The Mach1 is not as easy to disassemble and reassemble as the bigger mounts but it is possible. Those halves would probably be under 25lb.

Quote:Has this been confirmed anywhere on their forums as yet? I asked for the photography capacity of the PMX before and was given the "it depends" answer. The context of my question was the fact that my intended mount payload included a C14-XLT-Fastar + piggy-backed APO refractor package.
