- Great quality refractor, the EQ1 tripod is a bit flimsy
My only issue is the EQ1 mount, the equatorial mount for the Skywatcher 70mm is actually less solid and less sturdy than the 70mm Skywatcher Altazimuth mount version and I own both types of mounts for the 70mm telescope from Skywatcher.
Skywatcher could do better putting its 70mm refractor telescope on at least an EQ2 mount or better the EQ3 mount, which legs would match the solid Altazimuth mount on its 70mm refractor telescope.
