EM-11 or Em-200

For imaging only.

Scope 18 pounds.
Rings 2.5 pounds.
Plate 2 pounds.
Binoviewer 2.25 pounds.
Eye pieces 1 pound.

Total about 25-26 pounds.

Would the EM-11 be able to handle this or would the bulkier EM-200 be needed?

thanks h

I've no experience with the EM-11, but when I was in a similar situation several years ago with a much lighter load, I was steered towards the EM200.

I am a little confused since you mention "imaging only" but your equipment/weight list includes binoviewer and eyepieces. For a couple of years I used an FS-152 with binoviewer and eyepieces on an EM-200 and performance was excellent.
