TEC 140 apo question

Posted By William Green

Will the TEC 140 OTA accommodate a traditional type of finder bracket, or will it accommodate only the new type of finder bracket that TEC sells? What kind of finder brackets are you TEC 140 owners using???

Thank you.

CG-5 Advanced Series NON-GOTO Equatorial Mount

Posted By William Green

Anyone here have experience with this new, NON-GOTO version of the Celestron CG-5 mount? With its new tripod, can it support a C9.25 adequately for VISUAL work? I know that a GM-8 or G-11 would better support my C9.25 (I own a G-11 already), but I am looking for a lighter, cheaper, but still adequate alternative.

Thank you.

TeleVue Radians or Pentax XW's?

Posted By William Green

Which series for sharper planetary images in a C9.25? Or is the difference in sharpness negligible?

Do (or can) these sliding dew shields leave marks or scratches on the optical tube?

AP 600EGTO mount

Posted By William Green

Is this mount still being offered, even in theory??? I see it listed on the AP website, but I never hear about anyone owning one or receiving one. For me, the 900GTO is a bit heavy....

Is the interior of the dew shield lined with felt, as I have heard?
