I would like to have no limit on the amount of travel on the slow motion controls. Its one of many things I don't like about the stock mount is when you find something interesting you can only track for so long until you have to back it off and refind the object. As well as a more sturdy tripod is another big thing I want.
I've looked at the Meade LX70 that is on sale now, would that be a good mount that will grow with me?
Any suggestions will be welcome as Ill keep an eye on used mounts as well as new ones.
Edit: forgot to mention I do not need GoTo as I'm under dark skies when there is no clouds. Also love the simplicity of the AltAz mounts but the idea of being able to just having to move one axis on EQ mounts sounds interesting.
Can EQ mounts be used in an AltAz mode?
