Hi all,

I need a picture of a non-GOTO fork mounted SCT. Something along the lines of a Celestar or a Meade LX10. If you can snap one, please email it to me at webmaster@cloudynights.com. I need one for an upcoming article.

Thanks
Allister

Well, I have a vintage C5 on its fork mount - I can snap one of it on its wedge. We're talking early '80s vintage here...Celestar? LX10? When are they coming out? :roflmao:

Hi, Allister.

Here's a shot of CN member John Gillies' LX-10 taken at Neaf yesterday.
