I have two OTAs, an Orion Goscope 80mm refractor and 100mm Mak. Would they work ok for visual, with an iOptron cube-e goto mount?

The 3 pound 80 with 350mm focal length will work fine for visual.  The Mak is far less certain.  Can't find a weight, but the 1400mm focal length will magnify mount errors.

 

Worth a try.
