Re: C14 and AP160 side by side?

Christopher Erickson

I have had my C14 and 130 on my 1100 and also on my 900.

However for a C14 and a 160, personally I would go for the 1600.

It can be done, the balancing. Do you intend to attempt to image thru both at the same time? I advise against that. No matter how well your tracking and guiding is, there will be flexure and at least one will result in trailed images.

It should work if you can get it balanced well enough.

Hello all!

I'll soon receive a brand new AP1100 mount which I'll be using for my C14 EdgeHD and AP160 scopes.
Is it crazy to even consider mounting these two OTAs side by side on the AP1100? I should be right within the weight limit, including with my STT8300 CCD camera... (I realize the challenge of balancing such a monster setup).
