So I am looking into portable, lightweight goto mounts for observation tracking, and possible EAA. I have converged on two of the Sky Watcher items, specifically the AZ-GTi mount and the Star Adventurer with the 'Pro Kit' which comes with some mounts, and a sort-of adjustable wedge for EQ mount type work. I know that in both cases they can be purchased without tripods which is OK with me; I already have a tripod.
After reading into both they appear to have the same basic capability on the surface (?) such as weight capacity, goto(?), EQ mode, startracker port (not sure this is the right term) etc. So, what is the difference between these two other than the obvious packaging differences? Is there a reason to get one over the other depending on what I want to do? The Star Adventurer seems to be tailored more towards the EQ setup based on the items that are included in the pro kit, and its polar scope.
I searched and could not find an answer on this one so apologies if I missed it.
