Cheers guys, as im into photography i think the eq5 is the best option as i can use it as a tripod aswell.

with regards to the RA motor. I do not require a goto as the whole excitement of viewing the sky is finding the objects yourself.

If i buy the eq5 mount and the RA drive seperate, is it easy to fit ?

im struggling to find a deal with the EQ5, explorer 200/p and RA drive in one.

Also I assume the RA drive does the same job as the goto, i.e. tracking, except you have to find the objects yourself ?

The budget on this is gona be about £500 which after pricing all this up is what i can get it all for.
