Does look like just goto now, anyway that's better (the tracking only options was with the OTA too, and maybe was some time ago it was offered).

the legs dont look much different between the two pics,  if Jules @nightfisher has the "AZ Goto" not the "Discovery AZ  Goto" -  not 6kg difference surely ?? unless aly to stainless, hmmm I suppose so perhaps maybe ???

In which case I want the "AZ Goto" aly?  legs for portability and the "Discovery AZ goto" mount for its FreedomFind !

I think I have two options :

1) knock it on the head till monday or

2) Start a new topic correctly titled hmm ,,, what though for a complete thingummy ?

" StarDiscovery 150p, weight" should do it ? and hope someone with the whole portable thing comes by !

The big and significant difference is only the Star Discovery goto mount has Freedom Find.

Edit: out of the two mounts being discussed.

So, for anyone coming in at the end :) this is the question I should have asked at the beginning :-

Hi, does anyone have the weights of the tripod, the mount and of the 150p OTA for the SW Star Discovery 150p complete package

I have found a site (sky@night review) that gives the total weight as 18kg, but not the individual weights of the OTA,  nor of the mount and the tripod.

Thanks.

Brill.,  @Nigel G ,  thank so much, that is exactly what I needed :thumbsup: 10KG is well within capability, just the job :)

I was beginning to think I might need to do a 200+ round trip to a showroom which could have led to further temptation !

and thank you @happy-kat for the flag I think we have a goer here.
