Man... I was hoping this wasn't going to work, but it might just be too sweet to pass up. Almost the same focal lengths, great glass, and a nice set-up. Now for the clouds to clear out so I can give it a go. Fingers crossed that the EQ6-R Pro can do justice to it... I am thinking not as I was well over the "1/2 Rule for AP" already. With my previous iterations from 22 - 25ish lbs (below) it was still guiding and filming fine though.

This would work.

At one time, I had three TAKs (152/78/60) on top of the Paramount ME . THREE - way to many. Get an OAG and rid yourself of the smaller guide scope.

Thanks. This Hybrid is set up with a OAG... Appreciate the Mount idea and will keep it in mind.
