I'm looking to purchase a  new mount for my Williams Optics Z73 which I very much doubt I will change out for what I need.  I'm really interested in the iOptron mounts but not too sure which one to go for.  I have my mind set on the CEM40 but CEM26EC comes in at the same price and more portable if needed.   Then on the off-set is for just the hobbyist astrophotography will the CEM26 do?

You will see in my sig the equipment I'm running so any feedback or thoughts would be great.

I have the same scope and use mine on a CEM25P with no problem at all. The CEM26 would be a fine choice and the extra cash would be put towards a astro camera (another minefield of choice!).

The 25P tracks well for unguided exposures or for longer it connects to a PC for guiding.

Thanks for the input I do run an ASI1600MM Cooled so that should be OK but agree is the additional 600-800 really worth it?

I use an ASi533 cooled OSC and it's a great m,atch to the ZS-73. Not sure now if I'll go back to mono again.

Well I've thought about it and it and thought about it...  I've just pushed the button on the CEM26EC from FLO.  Hope it meets expectations 😉
