I'm researching mounts while I wait for my AT80EDT to ship. I've pretty crefully narrowed it down to these two mounts.
I really like the lightweight, goto GTI.
I really like the manual, slow motion of the twilight 1 .
I think i would use both depending on my needs - GTI for outreach and my family observing planets and the moon, and the Twilight for solo observing when I'm want to sit and not be distracted by technology.
First, does this make sense to do? Or should I just get the GTI?
Second, I'm struggling to figure out if I buy the twilight 1, can I just get the GTI head and stick that on the Twilight's tripod? This one seems to be a much better tripod.
Has anyone got both of these, or some similar combination? I suppose the porta tall+ would also be ideal, but there seems to be some debate on when / if we'll get that back in the US.
