BargeGazer Posted July 9, 2017 Share Posted July 9, 2017 I am currently using a Starmax 127 Mak which has a lot going for it as a compact travel scope. But it has a horrible focuser and a slow F-number. I am thinking of moving up to the Skywatcher 150pd-s Will the extra 25mm or so diameter give me a boost in visibility and usability (cool down time, focussing) as well as being a bit more astroimaging-friendly (speed)? I shall use it on an HEQ-5 so I think this should not be worried by the weight of the OTA even in imaging mode. David Opinion seems to be divided on the compatibility between this mount Ang the larger 200pd-s. Is this correct? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
