Marj --



Thanks. I was sort of afraid of that as the length of the Classical

Cass is more Newt-like than SCT-like. If I'm underwhelmed by the C9.25

I got to test things out, perhaps I'll look at a Mewlon 210.



By the way: my 1200GTO in Ireland has done more to ensure enjoyment (and

lack of frustration) in this hobby than any other purchase I've made.

(Although it seems to be leading to a bit of AP addiction....)



Thanks,

-- Jeff.

Hi Jeff,



We recommend that you use a 900 mount for your 10" Classical

Cass since it weighs 40 lbs. The 600E is rated closer to 25lbs,

depending on the length of the telescope.

Could the AP600eGTO carry a Parallax 10" Classical Cassegrain

(40lbs,

40" tube length) for visual use?



Thanks,

-- Jeff.
