Avalon Uno - whats the biggest scope anyone has had success with?

Recommended Posts

I'm currently using one of these excellent mounts with a small refractor. I would like to get a longer focal length scope in the future but just wondering if anyone has had experience with larger scopes, either good or not so good? 

I have the dec extender so a longer scope won't hit the mount, but I'm wondering about bigger refractors especially in relation to disturbance by wind and any potential balancing problems.

I think some people use large SCT's but it would be good to hear about any personal experiences.

Surprised there are no replies on this one. I use a Celestron 9.25” Edge at F10 and F7 and it handles this easily. I know others that image successfully with an 11” Edge.
