I have an opportunity to pick up an Meade LDX55 EMC 6" refractor on a Losmandy GM8 mount for $1500 Cdn (around $1150 US). Everything looks tip top, the mount is fully functional (not really sure of any upgrades/options at the moment). I have a Meade 102mm on basic mount, as well as a 10" and 12" reflectors. I prefer to binoview, however I have long been thinking of a real motorized mount and this seems like a deal. It would be my introduction to AP at some future point. Any thoughts? It's a package deal, all or nothing. I like the idea a large refractor as well, fully understanding this is not a top notch refractor but something that would certainly get used at the cottage. People flock to look through the 10" but of course knock any interesting targets out of view as they shuffle about.
