Quote:My LXD-75 has a dead dec drive and I can't tell if it is the motor, cables or connectors, or circuit boards. I am using it with a six inch Meade refractor - AR6. Many posts say this is at or beyond the limit for this mount. I'm thinking of upgrading to a heavier mount.
What would be a good match for the AR6?
Would I miss the Meade softweare, particularly Drizzle, for imaging? The Meade suite seems to integarte mount and camera functions togehter well. Do other goto mounts provide equal features?
