Quote:I currently have an Orion Skyview Pro holding my Orion 8" Astrograph, but the mount is alittle light for AP and I would like to upgrade to goto.
I noticed the Meade LXD75 is rated to 47lbs, gets decent marks for its goto and is relatively cheap (like everyone, I am on a budget) The 47lb rating seems really outlandish for a mount of this size, but otherwise it seems like a good solution.
Does anyone out there have any experiences they would like to share about this mount, or have another to recommend in the same price range with about a 25lb capacity.
Also, what about autoguider functionality with this mount, will an Orion Solitaire work?
