I've had a Vixen GP-DX for years and never mounted anything heavier than a C8 on my mount. I have a total of about 18 pounds of counterweights, and was wondering if my mount could support the weight of a C9.25?
I find my self using this mount more and more, instead of my larger losmandy G11, and have been considering buying a C9.25 and trying one out.
If I find the mount is too light, Id probably look for a GM8 as another light weight mount option for just setting up on my patio in a chair with my tripod legs set to very low for sitting. Ive also considerd Meades LX-85 but im really not a fan of chinese GoTo mounts. Im opposed to the AVX since I've had numerous friends with this mount who all seemed to be plagued with bad motors and firmware issues.
Anyone try this combo with a C9.25? I would probably use 1.25" eyepieces since they seem to get the job done in a smaller light weight package.
Thanks for any advice on any of this.
