I have an Edge 8" and AVX mount and want to add an auto guider to the setup for longer exposure times. Being it has a long focal length even with the .7 focal reducer I am wanting to mount an 80mm refractor with a dovetail and rings for a guider, then also serve as another scope to use for pictures.
I was thinking of putting the WO Star71: http://www.highpoint...elescope-a-wo71
Using that as a guide scope, then also be able to put the camera on there to use for photos.
Is this too much weight for the AVX mount? It would be a total of 19-22lbs with all the gear on it.
