Mounting 100mm binoculars on an Equatorial Mount

Posted By David Fontaine

Does it make sense to mount a pair of binoculars on a Go To equatorial mount? I've recently purchased an iOptron Zeq25 and want to see if it makes sense to mount giant binoculars to it.

Astro Tech 106LE Opinions Requested

Posted By David Fontaine

Hello All,
I'm evaluating an Astro Tech 106LE for purchase. I don't know a lot about them. It will be my first high end refractor purchase and I have some questions:
-Is a field flattener a good thing to have for a visual refractor or is it primarily a benefit for astrophotography?
-Does the AstroTech 106LE have a flattener.
-What does the LE suffix stand for in AT106LE?
My target refractor is a Williams Optics GTF-102, is this a better scope for a first higher end refractor? Is it worth holding out for a used one to appear on the market. The scope will be mounted on a new iOptron ZEQ25 with a 27lbs capacity. I'm setting a limit of weight at ~15lbs.
Thanks in advance for your opinions.

My add is listed as "Not Confirmed"??? How do I correct this?

Posted By David Fontaine

I listed an item about a week or so ago.  It isn't posting because it requires confirmation apparently?  What do I need to do to resolve this?
