Re: 4 reasons

Not that expansive, the whole system including computerized mount is only $700 and is in total about 14 kg. If you remove the telescope from the mount it weights about 8kg. There is also the smaller (4") Nextstar 4 SE with 5 kg. If you compare thiese values to lenses of comaprable dimensions thats not so bad. You can mount any DSLR with a T2 adapter.
