Why are you still dragging out that German equatorial mount for a quick
observing session ? Using an Altaz mount with encoders, still gets the
visual job done. It allows for 5 minute setup and takedown. Only tripod,
mount and tube to deal with, no extra German EQ parts. The German eq
mounts are needed for photography; but not for visual. Like they say, the
easier it is to setup, the more you will use your telescope, transport your
telescope and appreciate your purchase. Capacities exceeding 70 pounds.
Altaz Head weight about 26 pounds. Tripod about 20 pounds. Full zeinth
viewing possible with most scopes. Options for 4000 step encoders,
eyepiece caddies and hard cases available. The PIC below shows a SKy
Commander hooked up to the Altaz Mount. The mount is very accurate.
Your tube is mounted via your existing dovetail bars ( either Losmandy or
AstroPhysics ).
