Marmot Posted May 1, 2021 Share Posted May 1, 2021 Hi My second post with a question from a novice to those of you with a bit more knowledge. The title explains the question, but to give a bit more detail it’s as follows: i currently have a Skywatcher ST120 mounted on an AZ3. I like the AZ3 mount in that it is easy to use and I can literally plonk it down and point my scope at what takes my fancy. I like the simplicity. However, I don’t have to explain the shortcomings of the AZ3 and I know that at some stage soon I will want to upgrade. my first thought was to go for something like the AZ5 to keep the simple set up of an AZ mount but then I thought that at some point I may want try an EQ style mount. I was therefore wondering weather it’s possible to use an EQ3-2 mount in an Alt Az mode? If so, this would enable me to enjoy a better mount, still enjoy the simplicity of an Alt Az set up, but with the option of using it in EQ mode as and when I wanted to go down that road. it would purely be for visual as AP is far beyond me🙂 hope its it’s not a silly question and thanks for your patience. martin Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
