Re: Which to Choose; Absolute Encoders or 92 mm Stowaway
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Guess I'm really odd. In over 40 years of imaging, I've never needed a mount with absolute encoders and I have had a wee bit of success with my images. Always go for the gold! The Telescope! Sell your 1100, get the Mach 2. Problem solved. In fact, that's my decision. I have a new 1100 but if the Mach 2 has the load bearing capability as described, it's smaller size would make life a little easier. ;-)

I guess i am the odd one out - i would pick the encoders
you have some great scopes there, time to put them to even better use!
I am somewhere on the waiting list for one of the 92 mm Stowaway refractors, and I currently own an 1100GTO mount without absolute encoders. Someday, lady luck may finally shine her light on me and I will get notified that there will be a Stowaway available for me to order. I am also seriously thinking about upgrading my 1100 mount with the absolute encoders. The financial controller at my house tells me that I have to pick between the scope or the mount upgrade. I would be interested to hear comments from the other members which they would choose. I do almost exclusively imaging, and I already own two nice refractors; a recently upgraded Astro-Physics 180EDT, and a Tele-Vue NP101is. Choices. Choices
