You would be fine for visual use with that combination. Not so much for imaging. While the weight is within tolerance, the length will be a problem. You can certainly image with that combination, but you’ll need some skills, time, and patience. Unless you have some experience under your belt and have specific need for a 5” refractor, consider using the EXOS-2 with a shorter focal length refractor. The ED102 is a great scope and the focal length will be much more forgiving. The ED80 even more so.
