Yesterday I posted a question detailing my plan to get a SV SVX102 refractor. The plan was to buy the SV MC2 mount, paired with the Nexus encoder system so I had a decent push-to setup for visual. That post specifically asked about which eyepieces to buy.
If I did want to try imaging and a goto system, what are the pros and cons of the following, which I've garnered from doing research on these boards.
Avalon branded scope -- there are so many to choose from...
I was intrigued by the Rainbow Astro RST135 as it is so light.
And it's possible Im going overboard here -- I've read a lot about the CEM60 and the EQ6Pro, but these seem significantly heavier and while I read many positive things, people definitely have bad experiences with them.
I basically want a light system that has room for expansion if I ever want to try something more than the 4" refractor. I guess if I were to do imaging, I would run everything through an ASI Air Pro (Im a Mac guy), so the only real requirement for suggestions is that the mount be compatible with that system.
Thanks for any advice!
Edit, just realized my crappy spelling in the title -- apologies, I can't find a way to edit the title.
