Quote:Phil,Thanks for the recomendation, but as I had stated earlier, Orion, Celestron and Meade don't want to sell to us in the middle east. Celestron has a local distributor who does not sell mounts only and is approximately 2 to 3 times the price, Orion does not have a local dealer, but would still refuse to sell to me outside the US and Meade has a regional dealer who does not stock any products and is not interested in selling. Therefore these 3 manufacturers are of the list except as a last resort.

Quote:that's what i was thinking just reading this thread - does iOptron have a presence nearby or will sell to your location? - I really like the 45. Still the honeymoon with it but no complaints here and that is great!

Quote:IEQ30 looks very reasonably priced, Can't seem to dig up any reviews of it though.
