I finally mounted this beast of a telescope on the LX850. Despite having 3 26# counterweights (scope weight = 77#), I couldn't properly balance the mount. Has anyone else mounted such a heavy load on this mount and, if so, how did you balance it? I have PM'ed SpacetravelerX since he seems to have a lot of experience with this mount.
Once we get out of the rainy season here in Florida I am looking forward to getting some good observing/imaging time with this monster telescope!
