right now I am using an iOptron sky tracker mount on a manfrotto tripod
I am using a Canon 100-400L lens hooked up to an ASI1600MM Pro
So I am looking at my options to get a proper mount.
I've been looking at the EQ6-R Pro (watching the price fluctuate on Amazon Prime)
This should be a good mount for my existing kit and also allow me to upgrade to a dedicated refractor at some point later this year
I just noticed that the EQ6_R is now out of stock on amazon so am wondering if now is a good time to look at alternatives?
As well as needing to be capable for my kit above, I have the following considerations:
1) I live near a major city and I will be travelling up to my cottage in a dark zone every so often. So I want something I can throw in the back of my truck and setup at my remote site without too much hassle (or back pain) as well as setting up in my back yard
2) I am a little flexible around the price of the EQ6-R Pro but not much more
3) I will be wanting to add auto guiding at some point in the future too.
