GSO RC 10" and OAG

Just picked up a GSO RC10 and thought I would post a few images for people who may be interested. Also have a Hutech OAG that I will be using with it and it is a really nice unit if anyone is looking for something like this.
The OAG is totally customizable , you just order it with the fittings you need
and they can be swapped around to suit other scope and camera combos.

For those looking at an RC the 10" is bigger than you expect ! I had considered the 12" but would be best suited to a permanent set up , which I dont have. The 10 is heavier than a C11 I believe and a lot bigger and heavier than my C9.25 . It is also about as much as I would want to lift and carry around as it is a bit awkward without carry handles and tricky putting it on a saddle . Focuser seems pretty good I couldnt get any movement or flex from it , its also a 3" the same as on the RC12 so its huge

Hi Mark,

Looks impressive.

You will get some great photos with it, especially galaxy shots.

What mount do you have it on?


Thanks.

Ross.

Ross thanks , I am currently waiting for the G11s to come into the country
hopefully very soon. Took it for a spin on my CGEM which groaned a bit under the weight but still managed ok and optics / collimation looked pretty
good . I have ordered a Tak collimation scope which I will use in future.
