I ordered a 900 GTO mount and I would like put on it a C14 OTA. Is ok this

mount for C14 or the 1200 GTO is necessary?

Thanks.

I asked the same question of Marj and she asked what I would be using it for.

I said "eventually CCD" and she suggested I go with the 1200. She said the 900

would probably work but it would be safer to go with the 1200. Glad I did.

Massimo,



I have a C-14 mounted on an AP1200 GTO. It's an older orange tube,

which is somewhat heavier than the newer black tubes (50 vs. 40 lbs).

If you are going to do strictly visual work then the 900 mount would

probably get you by. If you plan to do imaging, then I'd go for the

1200. Any wind at your observing sight, and you'll be glad you have

the C-14 on a 1200.



Regards,



Dave

Hi all

I have the same configuration (C14+AP900GTo),i use this for ccd imaging with

my mx916 but if there is the slightest wind,it is very difficult to obtain

good image (cause of medium stability).

Bye

Vincent
