The LT is intended more for "take it out on a whim in the back yard." It is light weight and easy to transport. It is intended really for visual astronomy. The LX-200 is the heavy duty cruiser that is intended for very serious astronomy and astrophotography. It is very strong, but heavy. It can be set up with a wedge for equatorial operation (necessary for the really high end astrophotography), while the LT or LS are not.
