Hello,

 

Is this EQ platform working for dobs of 10" to 14" in the lat 25N degree?

 

https://www.teleskop...lar-height.html

 

I saw there are few EQ platform affordable, but the other i saw are up to 30kg so i doubt it can handle above 10" dob, and also rated for 40 degree up to 75 degree Lat, i live in 25 lat, so i am not sure if it is rated for 30-40 minimum can work.

well if you google chrome convert the page to english this is what the specs say:

 

The pole height is adjustable from 30 ° to 60 ° north and south latitude in 2 ° steps

 

so i would say probably not.
