Ive ordered a RST 135 mount and ive just sold my Ioptron Ieq45 pro.
Now im looking into buying a apochromatic telescope to use on this mount.My idea is to wait for the new Cat 71 in order to make my setup, a lot lighter. And subsequently sell my Tak 106 ED. But then comes my problem, every time i look at it i say: "i cant sell this", "i cant sell this". I am afraid that i will regret this decision, but im also afraid of using this scope on the RST mount, and having an accident like loosing the power and the all rig tip over.
The Tak is 7 kgs, with the NikonD5300 and the guide system is something like 8.5kgs. The mount can hold 13.5kgs without counterweights, but i have no confidance on this.
Do you guys know the weight of the focuser on this scope? If i replace it with the motorized Primalucelab 4" Esatto that weights some 2 kgs, will i gain something?
The guide scope and camera is the Qhyccd mini guide scope and camera, and so, i dont think i can go lighter than that.
I dont know what to do....
