Due to lack of time and inability to lug around my setup, I'm interested in downscaling to an ETX-125 EC or maybe even a 90. I'm willing to trade with someone who may want a larger scope if the ETX package is right.

I own a Meade 8" LX50 which includes,

8 X 50 Meade finderscope.
8 X 50 Antares Right Angle (correct image) finderscope.
Stock 6 X 30 Meade finderscope mounted as polar alignment scope.
Fixed height tripod with custom built observing tray.
Meade RA diagonal.
Meade 45 degree correct image diagonal.
Counterweight system.
Hand controller (not Mag)
JMI - NGF-S focuser with hand controller (NO image shift).
Meade Wedge (with home built latitude adjuster)
Rigel Quickfinder
AC adapter cord and many EP's with a 2X barlow.
Custom built wooden (finished) case/stand for Scope and mount.
EP (Scopetronix) and OTA (ugly Orion one) dew prevention heaters.

All of the above (seen in photo) can be sold as a package (make an offer) or traded for an interesting ETX package. I prefer selling/trading with someone in or near Wisconsin (Midwest) where we could meet halfway. Alot more photos and info for those who are interested.
