600 GTO Instrument Capacity


Hi all -

I have a 600 GTO with the wooden tripod on order with AP (not due until spring,
unfortunately). Initially I will use my Traveler on this (I know the 600 is
overkill), but I plan to eventually acquire an SCT -- of course I might just
succumb and buy one ahead of the 600's arrival.

I do have a quick question for the group. What have you experienced in the way
of SCT capacity for the 600 GTO, particularly when doing any kind of imaging? I
am assuming that an 8" will be fine; will the 600 work with the Celestron 9
1/2"? Is a larger SCT out of the question?

Also, for visual work how large an SCT would be workable?

Thanks for any input and best regards,

Paul Schroeder
