Hey yall, I'm Jeremy from Texas, and this is my first post here.
My wife recently spent a bunch of reward points from her work and got a Meade StarNavigator 114 NG telescope https://www.meade.co...r-ng-114mm.html.
My question is this...I would like to swap the OTA out with a bigger one. I'm looking at a Celestron 6" Advanced VX OTA https://telescopes.n...e-assembly.html.
Problem is I can't find any information on the weight limits of the Meade mount, or the motor assembly. The Celestron OTA weighs 10lbs. The weight of the Meade OTA isn't listed, only that the entire scope assembled is 14.72lbs. I have tried to call Meade but they have shut down their CS due to Covid.
Will this Celestron OTA work on the Meade mount? Or will it be too heavy? Will the Meade GoTo motor track correctly without lag with this extra weight?
Thanks in advance.
