by Gary Honis

In the photo below, the 127mm AstroTech ED APO Triplet (16 lbs) is riding alongside an Orion ED 80 using a ADM side-by-side system (VSBS) and rings (10 lbs) for a total of 26 lbs without diagnonals, eyepieces or cameras. The mount is an Orion EQ-G Atlas using EQMOD as the driver and it has a 40 lb stated capacity. The system slews and autoguides well using PHD guiding.
