Good morning all.

Some general advice if you would.

I have recently obtained a William Optics Megrez 90mm (1st edition) refractor.

For visual stuff it's been brilliant and I'm very pleased with it.

I would now like to do some astrophotography with it by attaching my dslr.

My local astronomy shop has offered me an Ioptron ZEQ25 mount for a very reasonable price from the showroom price.

This is due to the newer model coming out very soon the CEM25q.

Has anyone had experience of the ZEQ25 and will it fit my needs for astrophotography with the William Optics scope.

All the reviews I've read so far online say it's a good mount but I'd just thought I'd ask for advice here on Stargazers lounge.

Very much appreciate any feedback on this mount before I go ahead.

The weight of my scope and camera don't come anywhere near the max rated weight specified for the mount so that bit is not a concern for me.

Thanks all..

Hi not sure as it just specific max overall weight lows cd. It does not split it between the two?

should there be a difference?
