I've seen many neut setups with side mounted cams that just swung in the breeze. A notorious video of a 16803 mounted to an ASA neut showed many mm of flex just leaning on it a bit, what a disaster. 14 rolls of seletape around the whole shebang was required just to make it usable. That side mounting stuff must be a nightmare to manage.

Yes - you get what you pay for.
An RCOS can handle a big camera with ease.

A QHY9 is more than enough to hang on my Newt.
