EQ8 v SXD2 v CEM60 (FIGHT!)
« on: 10:30:29, 27 December, 2013 »
Now that there is a price for the CEM60 I guess we have a middle weight fight. Think more price than capacity £2K to £3K ish.

As it Stands
 The EQ8 is a bit hit and miss by all accounts but performs when its a good one. (Made in China)

 The Vixen SXD2 is a major revision or a version 2 depending on were you draw the line and might be the mount vixen always intended. If they have ironed out the bugs and improved the mechanical quality it could be a return for them. (Made in China assembled and QC in Japan (new rules))

 The CEM60 the new contender with a few new moves up its sleeves has plenty to prove. (Made in Taiwan)

Seems the £2k to £3k astrophotography mount with 15kg and up capacity is the new battle ground for 2014 and it looks like it is going to be hotly contested.


Kevin.

Been away. Feels like a long time.
