My TSA-120 got delivered last week (alas, don't ask me about the views, it promptly got cloudy in the evenings ever since). I've done mostly EAA and light imaging in the last few years, but now I'd like to go back to visual as well.
I spent yesterday a good time reading past threads when similar setups were discussed but those were at least two years old. I'd be grateful for suggestions and experiences. Main constraints:
- [must] Go-To (ideally, a modern version that would interface with SkySafari over WiFi)
- [must] ability to point the scope to/near the zenith (I used to have a Celestron Evo which was limited over 60deg altitude). This can be either by the mount's design or with an extension pier.
- [must] portable (this is more of a clarification, I'd be using it with a tripod or portable pier which I'll need as well)
- [nice to have] ability to use Losmandy plates (I already put the TSA-120 on one with rings, it'd be nicer not to have to take it out, but this is not a absolute requirement).
