Which mount is appropriate for TAL 100RS? Tha ota is only 4.3 kg according to the specifications, is it possible to use Giro mount or AZ4 mount?Is it possible for the ota to be placed on a stable wooden tripod? Thanks.

I have my TAL 100r telescope on a Vixen GP + Berlebach uni18 wood tripod and it works great!

TAL-100RS atop a Celestron CG-4 work very well - stable, easy to manipulate, and easy to transport. I'm out in the field with this setup frequently.

I use mone on either the TAL wooden tripod with their standard EQ mount if its grab and go or agop and HEQ5 ....the standrad TAL mount is ok (ish) a teensy bit wobbly and needs some gentle handing. On the HEQ5 is solid as a rock. An EQ5 would be ok.
