Shopping for a refractor Mount

For a given weight, length, and diameter of a refractor, how do you calculate the minimum payload equatorial Mount for visual use? 

For refractors over 6” dia and over 8 feet long. 

We can calculate eclipses thousands of years in the future, but I haven’t seen my question addressed anywhere.
