I am considering purchasing one of the new Orion 6" reflectors with an EQ mount. The corresponding instrument would be the Meade Starfinder EQ. If anyone can give insight into the comparison of these two instruments let me know. Specifically I am concerned about quality of the Orion tripod EQ mount and its stability with the 6" tube.

Thanks, Dave.
