Mount flex in Nexstar 6SE

Postby arcticeddie on Sat Dec 06, 2008 3:45 pm

I anticipate buying the 6SE from you before Xmas. However, I'm concerned about the amount of flex or sag in the alt axis of the mount. Would you please comment on the rigidity of the mount?

Thanks

Hi

Not even something to consider unless you plan to do astrophotography with a heavy camera. Will be fine even for visual work at 200x.

Thanks Joanie, that's comforting to know. I just got a discount card in the mail today so will order the scope and some accessories this week.

Merry Christmas
