Re: 900GTO Maximum Capacity for CCD Photography
Geometry seems to count as much as weight for mount capacity - mytoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
guess is that a folded scope like the RCOS would be fine, I believe
because the tube length is not that big in comparision to some other
I've been using a 16" f4.5 on my AP900:
It's ultralight for the aperture (62lbs including camera), and
probably the absolute max the mount can do, more because of the big

I'd be curious what AP's thinking was in stating the capacity of
70lbs... 70lbs refractor? Folded scope?
