I have the Skywatcher EQ3 tripod, and the only Skywatcher SkyMax I can get locally (or almost anywhere) is the 150. I’m interested in only visual observing, mostly of planets and the moon. (I have no interest in AP).
Will this tripod/telescope combination perform satisfactorily at what I’m interested in?
Edit: EQ3 max payload is 5.5kg
SkyMax MAK OTAW is 5.6kg (According to sellers website with: finder, diagonal, eyepiece, v-rail =6.4kg) I will replace finder scope with a lightweight red dot.
