…Missing my RV-6. Why oh why did I sell it?!?!?!?
Quote:Meaning having both LX850 and LX600 mounts?I would certainly go for that too! Though, the 14" OTA is still a bit huge.

Quote:Haven't had it out yet. In the process of modifying my wheeley bars so I can move it about. It is the 10" but this thing weighs a bunch more than my 8". Even using two people to lift and move is not an easy task. (Especially when I have a bad back.)

Quote:The guy that posted about the 12" he received said it was very stiff and that he was glad he had the Zero shift focuser.
