Kevin17 Posted September 16, 2022 Share Posted September 16, 2022 (edited) Hi, I have a lot of newbie questions for you all... Im looking to buy my first astrophotography rig, and i have come across RVO https://www.rothervalleyoptics.co.uk/ they do their own line of scopes called Horizon, does anyone have any experience of them (i think i linked an image below), there is very little on youtube / google etc about them. Also, if no one can recommend this brand, i would look for a similar refractor doublet, i think maybe a Skywatcher Evostar 100 ED DS Pro or William Optics Gran Turismo GT81 IV Triplet ED as they are similar money if anyone has any experience they can share? My next question is mount, i was going to go for a skywatcher eqm 35 pro mount as the weight capacity is fine for what i need, but i have seen some rather unflattering reviews about these suffering from bad backlash and poor tracking, and some that say its a good little mount and the problems are easily overcome. Does anyone have another recommendations for similar mount? or is it a case of just spend more on a Skywatcher HEQ5 Pro GOTO Mount With Rowan Belt Mod? Thanks all, i will no doubt fire more question at all who reply 🙂 Thanks Kev Edited September 16, 2022 by Kevin17 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
