Mount for new Stellarview 102 ED hard choice

Posted By Nicholas Longo

Hi everyone, I just purchased my first telescope and am trying to decide on a mount. I have done hours of research and am having a hard time deciding. I understand that to get a Equatorial mount with tracking for photography with I eventually will want to do I will need to spend around $1500.. I have considered the I-Opton EQ45, Losmandy GM 8, and the celestron CGEM. Each has some nice features but then I start to read of the faults and can't make a decision. I think the Losmandy has the best tracking but gets pricie when u add in the recomended assories. i also like the idea of the clutch. Any seggestion and opinions will be great.

Thanks,

Nick

GP or GPD2

Posted By Nicholas Longo

I have a Stellarview 102 Ed and eventually plan to ad a digital camera later, will the GP handle this set up or do I need to spend the extra money and get the GPD2?
