FS102 on Panoramic?

Well, since I haven't been able to sell my TeleVue Panoramic mount, I am thinking that maybe I need to get another refractor to mount on it. smile

In looking around, I know that the TV76, TV85, FS78 and maybe the Vixen and Borg 102 f/6.x scopes will work on that mount, but does anyone know if the FS102 with tube ring and diagonal would be too much weight for the Panoramic? I would rather go with at least an 85mm scope, as I just sold a Pronto...not quite enough aperture to please me.

Anyway, I am just trying to cover all the bases, and at the current Tak prices, well, it almost seems like a no-brainer.

Doug, The TV Genesis is definitely too large for the panoramic. If the FS 102 is comparable in weight to it, you'd be better off with something lighter. Mr. Darian Rachal

Sorry folks, I JUST saw the thread about the FS 102 on a Gibralter below! I would not have posted my question had I seen that one first....Senior moment I suppose.
