I am now extremely happy with the ATS 65. The answer to my puzzle is the same as the one I had with binoculars: you need at least two.

ATS 65 v 80 HD?

Friends,

It was the center column. I'm using a Sirui W-1204 - way overkill. But you can't extend the center column. I also used an extra long plate to balance the scope, but extended so far out over the...

Thanks all.

I had the ATS 65 out today mated to a Sirui VA-5 and the vibration dampening was terrible. Ruined the experience. The eye relief on the 25-50 with my glasses was also intolerable.

Thank you!

Do I need an adapter to use the 500AH? I think the 128RC has a 200PL which fits the foot on the ATS? If I am correct?

Chuck,

I will be making my first scope choice soon.

What ~80mm objective scopes accept astro eyepieces to your knowledge? I'd love to have this double as my grab and go for my astronomy side.
