Hi Dave,

I'm about 50 minutes north of you in Colac. Full disclosure: I have no experience with high quality refractors or equatorial mounts, I use a 8in F/6 dobsonian, and do a little bit of wide field photography on a DIY mount

If I was getting an eq mount with the weight capacity of the one you're looking at, I would be looking at putting a reflector on it, to try to capture as much light as possible in a given time. 8-10" f/5 maybe. They're usually a lot cheaper too.

You would have almost no light pollution there right?
