EQ3 pro questions.


Recommended Posts

I have recently bought a EQ3 pro motorised mount for my 130m skywatcher reflector. The mount works very well but my question is, what is the largest size reflector a EQ3 mount can handle as I am looking at perhaps upgrading the telescope in the near future. 

 

Thanks

If you are looking into trying astrophotography perhaps a 130 pds will work. If you fancy a refractor a Skywatcher Evostar 72ED would work equally as well; I own that scope and it works flawlessly for deep-sky imaging. It's best not to exceed half of the rated payload capacity as it may stress the mount's motors so I would go for the latter option if portability and weight is a concern. I hope this helps!
