EQ option


Recommended Posts

when my prezzie gets here (TAL150P) i will have some pennies left from my budget to consider an EQ mount (after buying a few radians), which would be best, the EQ3syn or the EQ5syn?

It comes on a mount anyway but i may want the auto tracking option later on (for pics)

got to hide this thread, "possible upgrade", the wife would skin me!

thoughts are the same barkis, i was thinking of a 200k later down the line so maybe a HEQ5 syn

You'll need to box clever to sneak that one past the good lady.:)

IMHO it would be better to pass on a couple of eyepieces to get the best mounting you can. The best eyepieces in telescope on a wobbly soft mounting amount to nothing!

The HEQ5 Syntrek would be a good compromise; upgradeable to GOTO etc later.

good input merlin66 but i wont be imaging straight away, i am going to spend the first year (ish) learning the sky with the TAL 150P so the mount it comes on should be fine but the EPs, nah, will need something better than the supplied ones, me thinks :)
