Looking at getting a 10" Meade LX200 tube from a friend for a very good price. I had a 10" LX6 which required being put on the wedge and I found it rather difficult to do, so I'm not sure if I want to put it on an older manual mount.
At the same time, LX200 forks seem to be very pricey and I'm wondering if I should just go with a GEM. Would a CG-5 (steel legs) hold it or do I really need an EQ6? What about a GM-8?
I'd have to store the scope at least partially dismantled - my shed can no longer be used really for storage and the garage is occupied - and it'd mainly be for travelling to dark skies or outreach, so there's that to consider too.
Or should I just forget this and stick with the orange fork-mounted C8 once I get it back (loaning it out right now)?
