So does anyone believe there is cause for concern about the longA C14 on a G11 mount is quite stable for visual use.
Why push a very nice, not inexpensive, mount like
the AP600GTO by loading it down with a C14?
Once when I wanted to compare my old AP 152mm f/9
StarFire to my new AP 155mm f/9 EDT StarFire, I mounted
the older StarFire on Celestron SP mount. With extra weights
and careful balancing the SP motors drove the big OTA
Apparently the G11 is designed to take a heavy load. It is
also relatively inexpensive. If I couldn't afford one of the larger
AP mounts I would feel much better taking a chance with the
less expensive G11.
