Is the Orion Atlas Pro AZ/EQ-G about to get replaced?


Recommended Posts

Many of the stores I see online that carry this mount seem to be out of stock. Does anyone know if mount getting ready to be replaced by another model?

Also, do you think it is worth trying to order the Skywatcher AZ EQ6-GT instead? Any tangible benefits other than it being white? I do like the look of the white one better...

Orion's site indicates that it won't be available until early April. I don't know what the problem may be. I know they had an issue with their original hand controller manufacturer. Skywatcher is coming out with a junior version of the AZ-EQ6 named AZ-EQ5.  It will have a smaller capacity. It will be available in the U.S. from Skywatcher. I don't know what that means for Orion.
