Re: Can the Mount Saddle on the IEXOS-100 be Replaced #ExploreScientific


I'd like to find out about that also.

The stock iEXOS-100 is fine with the original saddle as its load capacity is limited. However once the user upgrades the tripod to ST2/3 and gets more counterweight, the iEXOS-100 can support upto 10kg load. In this case I feel the original saddle might be inadequate.

Mount: Skywatcher HEQ5 Pro w/ Rowan belt mod + ADM saddle & ES iEXOS-100 PMC8 w/ Fine AZ adjuster + ST2 tripod
