I have been slowly adding to my telescope and mount collection for the last year. A couple months ago I added an AZ4 to my list of mounts and have really enjoyed it. The AZ4 is super simple and grab and go and is going to get a lot of use with the 120ST.
I have been looking for a better EQ mount (I have an EQ1 for the 90mm MCT) and was thinking about an CG4 or EQ5 but recently found a very well priced older EQ6 (non-goto). The EQ6 is a pretty heavy duty mount and really overkill for my 120ST and super overkill for my 90mm MCT.
My thinking is that I have the AZ4 for grab and go and the 10" dob will always be there for DSOs but I am thinking that the EQ6 is a good EQ mount for visual that will be able to grow with me should I want to get a bigger telescopes to EQ mount.
So I guess my question is... Is an EQ6 really just too big for visual? Will I just not use it because it is a lot of mount to set up (60lbs). Would I be better with a CG4 or EQ5?
