There is a 10" Classic LX200 in the center. Just put it up yesterday on the new AP1600GTO mount. That's a Coronado 90mm Max on the left and an Orion 80mm Short Tube Guide scope on top.

Not to worry, I plan on getting it some more company on the side with the counterweights.

That is a sweet portable setup you have. Makes it a lot easier to get in and out. I'm just to lazy so I finally got my permanent setup.

My current LX200 ACF setup - Aluminium Dec Clutch Knob (replacing the old plastic Meade one..) was fabricated by friend of mine in the UK who is an excellent engineer and craftsman (Thanks Brian!)
