Iv been doing abit of research on this as I want a light grab and go tracking platform, will this take the weight of ed80 with dslr?? or is that too much weight for it?

It would be close to max payload, but in practice it will be too heavy.

I've used DSLR and ST80 which is a bit lighter than the ED80 on my SWSA, I have used it for solar imaging with over 5Kg and extra counterweight but that was using video so more forgiving.

Presently using DSLR and 300mm at about 3Kg which works well
