I've got a 150mm Mak/Cass on my CG5 and it's a nice portable setup, I just wondered whats the biggest MC that a EQ5/CG5 can handle?

Does your LXD75 mount have the 2" diameter legs on the tripod or the 1.5" diameter legs?
I am considering getting the new LXD75 with 2 inch legs for my soon to be here mak-newt (MN6.55.5 ? don't know the name yet, appr 20lbs). I have read that the larger diameter leg is a big improvement.
I have seen the newer ASGT mounts with the 2 inch legs holding a 9.25 and it seemed really sturdy to me. So I am hoping (I have autostar spare parts and a controller) that the new LXD75 is equal to the newer ASGT. I haven't even seen a picture of the newer LXD75 yet.
