I figured some mods/fabs would be needed but as long as I can fit a plate between the forks and ota I can get it made for free and do the drilling tapping myself. I kind of have a machine shop at my disposal, I just have to bribe my dad or his coworkers with food and/or beer for the machines I cannot run lol.
I probably won't try to fit a meade, too many other things to buy for my working scope lol, but was curious incase I saw a deal on a OTA.

I put an old Orange tube on an LX3 mount for Astrophotography way back when... then found out the old spur system had as little or less PE than the LX...
bUT going DC was great...it turned a lot of heads..
