Need a new mount new

I looking for a new mount for visual with my soon to be picked up AP160EDF. Until I get my Mach I whenever they begin shipping, I need something as a temp mount. It needs to be at least semi-portable. The lighter the better. I have considered :

G11
CGEM
CGEM DX

I'm open to others. I don't want to spend too much and it's only for visual for now.

Unless someone want to sell me a Mach !

Joe

Have you considered the iOptron iEQ45? Rated at 45 pounds capacity, but the mount head weighs only 25 pounds.

Here's an epic thread about it if you have the time to read it:

By the way, there is another jmiele (John Miele) in that thread who owns an iEQ45. If it's good enough for him ...
