if you find that the Sirius is not enough mount for you the used value of the Sirius vs the atlas is not a whole lot so you could sell it and get an atlas. the weight differience is significant and the sirius can do better if its put onto a sturdier tripod than it comes with stock, the smaller tripod it ships with is probably one of its biggest downfalls when it comes to doing AP with heavier loads, its a pretty solid mount otherwise.
