    What's the OTA weight please?
  6. Looking at Flo Data the AZ GTi will take 5Kg The OTA weighs 5.1 naked so you will be over before you put a Barlow or big ep.
  7. Thanks Olly. Better get a Frac....but try a few with the Mak 127 firstly Thanks Tim. Sounds like I am better off with my Mak 127. My interest is caused by an urge to try my hand at some photography and more light pollution is driving me to a goto mount anyway and a nice mount for sale is paired with an RC scope. Mainly I am visual... Perhaps an EQ5 goto is the way to go. My main scope is a 10" DOB, not to difficult to collimate.
  8. Thanks for that informative contribution....food for thought. Mike

  10. Your right in a lot of cases but Skywatcher scopes on my favourite suppliers site often says "No specification available" Googling gets done but when why can't the seller ensure that this info is always available . You don't expect to have to Google the f number .
  11. Why oh why won't vendors give the weight of an OTA in the blurb.... I know we all add things from an EP to a full astro rig but it would help if I knew the OTA weight when contemplating another purchase and matching to the mount. Anyone feel the same....? What does FLO think? Clear skies
  12. Ok guys and ladies Anyone used one and if so how good are they. Please also comment on visual as well as photo mode. Thanks
