Re: Can't get less than 1" total RMS

Ah, Losmandy rates the G11 at a 60 pound payload. Your average 12" f/4.5 Newt weighs about 45 pounds. CF may knock off a 2-3 pounds, but you are still pushing the mount's limits.

Additionally, as we say at the yacht club that boat has a a lot of windage. The 50"+ length and 14"+ height of the optical tube has to be considered when evaluating the capacity of a mount.
