If you folks haven't heard, Meade has been shipping the LX850's now for some time. My friend JRCrilly and I ordered the 14" LX850 combo and am expecting to hear very soon on the shipping of this. He will take the mount, and the 80mm scope and I will get the 14" f/8 OTA from it.

How many of you already got yours? I seen sporadic instances of postings elsewhere here and also on other group websites with the users....all so far very pleased with this mount and the capabilities!

Come aboard this thread and share your experiences! :jump:

Len, I have a 14" on its way, will be here Tuesday.

What 80mm are you referencing?
