Celestron HeavyDuty Altazimuth Tripod new
      #6350962 - 02/02/14 11:00 AM

Can anyone give me any feedback on the Celestron HeavyDuty Altazimuth Tripod? Would I be better off with the EQ1 ? Don't really need an equatorial mount. I have an Orion ST80 that needs a new mount but I don't have a lot to spend right now.

Thanks

You can see in this post that user tnakazon is using an inexpensive Celestron Astromaster AZ mount ($60) with a C90. I'm pretty sure Terry also has an ST80. I'd try sending him a PM and asking for his impressions.
