    FAQ

    Q:
    I have a Sky Watcher ED100 fitted to an AZ3 mount. I wish to move into astrophotographery, and was wondering if you could recommend a suitable tripod, and mount that incorporates a motor drive. Regards.
    A:
    Thanks for the email. You won't need anything too big. The following are just manual where you can add the motor drive on separately: SkyWatcher EQ3-2 Mount with Aluminium Tripod - http://www.ozscopes.com.au/skywatcher-eq3-2-mount.html SkyWatcher EQ5 Mount with Aluminium Tripod - http://www.ozscopes.com.au/skywatcher-eq5-mount.html The following both incorporate the computerised part however are much more expensive and are larger than what you really need: SkyWatcher EQ5 Pro GOTO Mount - http://www.ozscopes.com.au/skywatcher-eq5-goto-mount.html SkyWatcher HEQ5 Pro GOTO Mount - http://www.ozscopes.com.au/heq5-pro-mount-goto-skywatcher.html
    Q:
    I was wondering what kind of mount would be suitable- I won't be doing astrophotography & don't want an equatorial mount, just a basic mount to be used on uneven ground at the farm.
    A:
    Any telescope tripod should have the suitable mount for the Skywatcher OTA, which has a pretty standard dovetail. You can get the Saxon EQ5 Mount (http://www.ozscopes.com.au/saxon-eq5-mount-w-steel-tripod.html) - It's not computerised but it's very sturdy and has an Equatorial mount.
