    Hi Arc, welcome from me too. Enjoy that scope (after the skies have cleared)
  9. Thanks for the feedback, It sounds like the Porta Mount is a goer. I think I'd like to see it and the EZ touch before I make a decision but at the moment prefer the Porta Mount. Good to hear that a few people have pushed it to 200x.
  10. Welcome to the forum styar girl. Always happens, get a new scope and can't use it. Clea skies for you soon I hope.
  11. Welcome to the forum star girl. Always happens, get a new scope and can't use it. Clear skies on their way soon.
  12. Thanks for the invaluable information Darren. I've just had a look at the EZ mount with the EQ6 legs, looks ok, I'll try and find out how much it weighs. I guess that is gonna be the trade-off, weight vs portability. Any one got the EZ mount with EQ6 legs? Any other sugestions for portable but not too heavy mount/tripod?
  13. Hi, Already thinking about moving on to my second scope. My first scope is the Celestron C100-ED-R with a CG5 mount. I have already posted on how heavy this is mainly due to the EQ mount/tripod, not as I expected. Anyhow I really do hanker after something a lot more portable and a better built scope. Thinking of a Megrez 90 with a Vixen II Porta Mount, anybody use such a setup? Would it work?
  14. Hi Lightorb, welcome to the forum, cloudy skies here as well tonight alas.
