This Lx200 Saddle Mount is overkill for me so I am striving to lighten my load a little and get a more portable setup. This mount converts the drive and forks from a 10" lx200 into a full astrophotography capable platform for just about any OTA you can think of.

Shown mounted on it in the right photo are my 6" f6 MakNewt (on a Losmandy Dovetail) and TV76 under the saddle. The left photo shows my FS=60c with STV efinder guider mounted above with counterweights. Both are in perfect balance.

It can handle anything up to the size of a C9.25. A Meade 10" OTA can be easily refitted on the mount as well if you remove the saddle.

If has great RA tracking performance, especially with PPEC enabled. DEC is typical for an LX200. M51 and M13 below were UNGUIDED series of images at 30 sec and 1 min. M27 was STV guided.

Drive(3.34L)/forks/hand controller/18V power supply/Saddle/Losmandy brackets/counterweights : $975

Meade 10" Heavy duty Tripod: $175
Meade Superwedge: $275
90mm Losmandy Rings: $65

If you want multiple items, I'll give you a price break.

Paypal (+3%), MO, Check (wait for clearing) OK. Shipping additional.

You'll never find a Goto mount that's astrophoto capable and can handle 30+ lbs at a lower price.
