Hi. I am thinking of mounting a 20lb C9.25 on my Vixen GPDX and using Vixen's skysensor GOTO to drive it. Resason is that I already have the GPDX mount and an excellent Astrosky tripod. The specs says the mount is rated for 22lb. Does anyone have experience in this config? I would like to know if there are problems opearting close to the max rating of the mount?
Thank you in advance for your comments.
