Re: Mach1 Capacity

I image with a 40 lb payload consisting of a SkyWatcher 190mm Mak-Newt and a piggy-backed Stellarvue 90mm triplet refractor using an 18 lb + 10 lb counterweight for a total weight of 90 lbs, and I get sub-arc second guiding with that setup. AP recommends 97 lbs total weight with counterweights. Sounds like Suresh is imaging with more weight than that, so I can't imagine you would have a problem with that weight for visual.
