I believe the RHA is 60 lbs without the dewsheild, but with the cover. My pier is a bit taller so I cannot cradle mine like Roland in the photo, but first you have to get it out of the box before you can get to cradling it.
Regarding the Mak, I believe the only thing I may have liked to have seen is a pair of handles as is on the RHA; having the ability to get a good grip and velco wires against. Understandable, having removable covers and structural spokes makes placement of handles difficult. So far, I grab the center tube close to the back plate to get the scope of the box, then I can maneuver to cradle it.
BTW, I found a sequence of photos in the apug file archive that shows Roland's way of putting the heavy RHA into the tube rings. The RHA is nearly 50lb. Note the orientation of the the telescope saddle plate. Of course this shows a side x side configuration. Astro Physics mount position 2 should be used. This also demonstrates how Roland stays so fit. ;-)
Should be easy with the 30 lb MCT.
