Hi guys,

 

I just got a Sky Watcher 100ED APO and will build a pier mount for it. Like the one I built for my C4-R. The old one had a LXD-55 head and worked quite well. Had a table and adjustable feet as well to level the mount. This one:

I really don't need a tripod for it. So was wanting to know if any of you guys know of a goto head I could yet, but with out the tripod. Thanks
