Welcome to the forum; ZEQ25... has 27 lbs. capacity. Otherwise if you waited a bit you could get iOptron CEM-60, in beta testing now. What is your budget for the mount, besides capacity? Regards

Are you looking for goto or push-to? Manual or motorized? What price range? There are a ton of choices that can hand that OTA, so you need to narrow it down a little.
