And I thought the Eon 120was a wide field scope. I guess the more the merrier. An 8" SCT would have 3x the light grasp and be around the same weight as your Eon. I guess I don't quite see the logic of pairing two of the same telescope type but others are recommending it, so what do I know?

Can I add some weights to the 80 mm scope somehow?




Sure, just use a 21mm Ethos (2.25lbs) or a 31mm TermiNagler (2.2lbs) with the 80mm f/6 for a bit of gravitas. With an ocular of modest weight in the 120mm the differential would only be 5lbs... and/or perhaps the 80mm can be extended further to the outside, (ask ES). That's a husky little mount!
