B/V and small scopes??

I was wondering do B/V's work on the ETX 90 / Nexstar 4, size scopes work or are they just to much for the mount to handle in the GOTO mode

I have used binoviewers on my ETX90-RA while it was tracking without any problem, but full Goto mode on an EC model would be a challenge.

I think your best bet would be to use one of the clone binoviewers. They weigh less than the Denk, Siebert, or Televue models.

The good new is that you will not need any type of OCA/OCS with these scopes. That also cuts down on the weight and makes the setup less awkward.

Binoviewers are really great for day time viewing of terrestrial targets with my ETX90.
