Hi

Before I jump in at the deep end is the Sky-Watcher HEQ5 PRO SkyScan that much better than the Sky-Watcher EQ5 PRO SynScan, looks about £261 extra.

Looks like it will take the extra weight if I ever wanted a bigger Scope?

Thanks

Sky-Scan EQ3-2
Celestron C8
SkyWatcher 80ED Apro
Sky-Watcher Skymax-127 SynScan AZ GOTO

Bill,
Short answer -yes but it might be worth having a word with Joe who has one and carries it out!

Thanks for the feed back, I borrowed the Vixen which I managed quite well, hopefully Joe can comment. I also notice you can by it with SynTrek or SynScan I was hoping to but the SynTrek one and use the AZ GOTO hand set but I don't think it will work and will phone the local supplier tomorrow

cheers
