Gary,

Waaaayyy too heavy. It’s not just about the balance but the pressure on the gear train. It just wasn’t designed for the tracking precision for imaging with that sort of payload...

Most I’ve used is a WO Z61 + Canon and it does OK.

If you fancy stripping it down and giving a re-lube and a bit of tuning, you may have some luck. An Esprit 80 is still not a small scope though.
