  1. That’s what I’m finding. Thanks to all for the input. Clear skies
  2. Hi, I have a Meade LX85 6" Mak. The OTA weighs about 13lbs without accessories. I'm getting the hang of the GEM mount, but I find it a hassle to get right and miss the ease and speed of the Alt-Az GoTo I had with my previous 5" Mak. I'm primarily a lunar observer and have no real interest as yet in astrophotography. In consequence, I'm looking for a relatively inexpensive GoTo Alt-Az mount (and legs) to carry the Mak. I will be keeping the GEM. Advice much appreciated.
  3. There are plenty of people here with a great deal more experience than me, as I have seen from this thread. But I'm going to give it a go. I have a pretty good regular diagonal to use at high magnification if I find it necessary. It only takes a few seconds to plug in a diagonal, and a diagonal is an absolute necessity with any kind of Cass. Spend an hour or too looking through one without and you wont be concerned about anything other than finding a chiropractor.
  4. Hi all, I'm becoming a bit of a Moon and Planets visual observer and in consequence, I'm considering an Amici Diagonal. I have read that at high magnification your view can be obscured. That said, I have read that it is of little consequence when using a Mak and a decent diagonal like this one - https://tinyurl.com/y75z4n5v from Baader Planetarium. I'm really keen to make my East East and my West West. Any advice or experience would be welcome
