Review by:
I travel the State of Maine viewing with several Astronomy clubs and this has been the ideal scope for me. I do not do astro imaging but the lighter weight LX90 mount reduces its weight to about the same as a 10" LX-200. That makes it nicely compact for transporting in the back of my car and light enough to enable remote setups while still providing a generous 12" aperture. I've had many complements on the image quality using my favorite Televue eyepieces. If you make an extra effort to carefully level the base before sky alignment, the mount puts the object in a moderate power field of view every time. I'm taking one star off because the the finder should be replaced with a matching right angle finder scope for similar sky orientation. A separate eyepiece focuser is also useful because of the effort needed to adjust the position of the large primary mirror. At Woodland Hills' current holiday pricing, this is an extraordinary bargain. (Posted on 11/16/2014)
