Re: 1200GTO as a portable mount?
Hi Joe,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I am think that the large RA gear on the 1200 gives it a lower PE? But
other than that your right about it just being a larger scale.
Can one ever have too much mount? Bill had said earlier that he has balance

both of my scope set ups so I shouldn't have a problem I hope.
