For visual use it may work with your C6 but you might want to consider something better suited for your application. AP is definitely out of the question. What is the weight of the largest EP you will be using with the C6?
It's just for visual. At the same time I have a 60D and C8 on a CG5 shooting fuzzies and galaxies. I put a 40mm or 25mm in the C6 for folks that want to see the moon or Saturn or whatever. If it's a very clear night I'll put a 4inch f/5 refractor on there instead. I was using a Mini-Hitch but sold it and bought the Acratech GP, which is more useful for non-astro photography. Public stargazes are about the only time the C6 comes out, it was a package deal with the CG5 but otherwise, although it's a fine scope, I just don't have a tremendous amount of use for it. The small refractor works quite well, I'll probably end up sticking with that and sell the C6.
