At first I was interested in the new Celestron StrarSense Explorer DX 6" SCT. Actuallly, I still am. But I´ve read somewhere the mount is not sturdy enough for the 6" tube. Can anyone confirm this?
Second choice is the 5" version, and I´ve read many good reviews on this forum for the C5 scope. However, when I compare the tubes for the StarSense and the spotting scope version, there´s quite a difference in tube weight. The StarSense is 2,26 kg and the spotter is 2,72 kg. Thats almost half a kilo in difference. Quite a lot for such a small tube. Why is that?
The price for a complete StarSense is the same as for the C5 spotter only. Can´t help wondering about that.
Would very much appreciate if anyone with the 6" or 5" StarSense could tell me about your experince with the scope. Good or bad?
