Product QuestionsQuestion by: happy on Aug 29, 2015 12:31:00 AMThis equatorial is driven manually, so it wouldn't do very well for tracking. If you were to purchase the Orion EQ-3M Single-Axis Telescope Drive for this mount. It would be sufficient enough for visual use. If you plan on doing any astrophotography, I would recommend a something like an Advanced VX or a Bresser Exos-2.Answer by: Jonathan Cheek (Admin) on Aug 29, 2015 1:57:00 PMwill this equatorial mount with the "v" series head accept a celestron SC telescope with CG5 dovetail mount?Question by: royg44 on Sep 2, 2014 1:27:48 AMAs long as the SCT you are mounting is less than the 12 lb weight capacity of the AstroView mount (5" and 6" would work, but 8" scopes are too heavy), a scope with a CG5 rail will fit right onto this mount. You may need to get an additional counterweight if you are getting close to the 12 lb limit.Answer by: Chris (Admin) on Sep 2, 2014 6:16:45 AM
