Dobsonian style mount for large Refractor
      #4453839 - 03/16/11 02:21 PM

I'm considering one for my 6" F/10. I currently use an Atlas with pier extension and have a Giro mount as well. The Giro handles the weight pretty well, but I get a lot of vibration, long dampening time. Just wondering if a dob style on a tall tripod for my ALT/AZ mounting would be better.
