Hi All,

 

Can someone tell me the measurement between the bottom of the mount base to the center of the declination axis for a relatively recent model of the 12" LX200 ACF?  I currently have a 10" LX90 mounted on a pier and am planning on upgrading to the larger LX200 so I'm trying to get an idea of how much taller the LX200 will be.

 

Thanks!

I have a 12" LX200 "Classic" ... 2001 model ... and it's 21¾" from the center of the Dec axis to the bottom of the base. It's an older model, but you haven't had any reply's ... yet.

Thanks, Skyguy.  That dimension shouldn't have changed dramatically, I would think.
