Grab and Go mount for Evostar 72ED

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody!

I recently purchased an Evostar 72ED to serve as my grab and go scope and now I’m looking for something to mount it on. 

The scope will be used for visual only with no need for tracking or GoTo. Lighter the setup, the better. Can you give me some recommendations? What mount do you use your 72ED with? :)

I use the cheap 'n' cheerful  AZ3 for small 'scopes. It's ultra light, but rigid. I added a counterweight like this one, but with a length of 12mm threaded bar for the arm: www.spacegazer.com/index.asp?pageid=97490 .
