Re: Telescope Recommendations #iEXOS-100

Wes Mcdonald

Yes chuck is correct. 

Other vendor equipment is to be discussed in the applications sub group, but even then it should be relevant to a pmc8 user experience.  Employing the asiair on a pmc8 mount is a great example.

Frank have some go advice in that some scopes may require an extra counterweight, or extension of the 100’s weight bar.  

The exos 2 may need a lighter weight counter weight for small scopes.  

Each mount has a rated payload, on for visual one for astro.  Scope choice should consider those limits.   All scopes sold indicate their weight.

Many telescope recommendations my be found on other genera purpose forums.
