Our view

Choose this combination if you are thinking of adding dSLRs and guidescopes, or 2" star diagonals and 2" eyepieces to the weight of the OTA. The EQ5 is more capable than the EQ3-2 for handling greater weights. An excellent white light solar refractor by adding some Baader Astrosolar over the front aperture. An affordable instrument for schools to purchase for science project astronomical observing. 120mm is easily enough for visibility of all Messier objects as well as good lunar and planetary detail.

Tips

Budget for an A4 sheet of Baader Astrosolar and a weak sky pollution filter such as the Baader Neodymium 1.25 filter. Budget also for a 1.25" Baader polarizing set or a 1.25" Neutral density filter for the moon. It is also worth considering a 6mm eyepiece for the moon and planets.
