Sure would appreciate any estimates that any of you could give me.

I used your premise w/the info I could find on Meade's site, and came up w/46 lbs. Does that sound reasonable to you?

The 10" LX-200 Classic with all the same accessories was too heavy for me to lift easily (awkward and >100 lbs).
In separate pieces, though (who lifts the entire scope? This isn't a grab-'n'-go scope.), the heaviest piece on a 10" LX-200 was <50 lbs--manageable.
So, if you transport it in pieces (and you should), the 10" should be easy to handle.
