Just curious...

Looks like Herb and Roland never tried it, otherwise here answeres would be diffrent.

The Mewlon 300 looks big, its big, but its compact. I use it at bhighest power on a Tak NJP Mount where its loadet rock solid, more solid then you need. The CGE-Pro Mount will hold the Mewlon 300 very well, even for imaging.

best wishes
