I've got Sky-watcher 80ED on EQ5 mount with SynScan, with some good EPs and zooms (see my signature). I also have Sky-watcher AZ5 mount with stock aluminium tripod (not the heavy duty version), which has max load capacity of 5kg.
I am thinking of complementing this with a bigger aperture scope, and I need something small and grab-go. I am thinking of SW Mak 127 or 150.
Mak 150 would be nice due to its bigger aperture, but I also like the ergonomics of 127. Is there any substantial difference between 127 and 150? I would also like to use my existing EP/zooms, without buying new EPs.
It would be also good if I can use the Mak with AZ5 while on the go. AZ5 seem to handle Mak 127 without issues (saw internet photos of AZ5 carrying 127). But Mak150?
In general, 127 would be the best choice to use with AZ5 and for its smaller size. But is there any performance difference where I should go for the 150?
If you used both Maks (and specifically with EPs and mounts I mentioned), your suggestions are appreciated!
