Hello,

I really like the Meade LX200 telescope line. I am travelling around and visiting sometimes small and big observatorys. Do you know observatorys worldwide using an LX200?

My home observatory uses a small but ultra sharp 8 Inch ACF 2021 .

I also know:

Sternwarte Doberlug-Kirchhain 14“ GPS
Sternwarte Herzberg 12“ GPS

U knowing more? Now its your turn!

Greetings from Germany
Stefan

Hi Stefan, I came across this wiki page in my own search for info about the 8" LX200 ACF:

https://en.wikipedia...iki/Meade_LX200

 

Incidentally, how did you end up choosing your OTA? I'm trying to decide between it and a Celestron EdgeHD and I'm finding it tough to find any direct comparisons. Is there anything in particular that influenced your decision?

Hi,

I really prefer Meade products, so i choose this brand. But i think Celestron is also very good. The views are amazing sharp and it is a really nice all in one telescope.
I also have dobsonians up to 20 Inch. So its More for astropbhotography.

Greetings
