    Any first hand reviews on this scope?

    My telescope is the same C11 OTA on a much beefier mount. If you plan to take pictures, the mount will be a serious limitation, but if not you should be ok. The optics, however, are excellent.

    I would like to take some pics, stacking if necessary. I saw this scope for 1999 on an equatorial mount. Was intrigued. If you like it, that is all I need to know.

    Will the the eq5 mount be adequate on a permanent pier?

    The tracking error (periodic error) of that mount is the real killer - a pier doesn't help that.
