My Explora-dome which I moved from S.CA to it's new home in Prescott Valley, AZ. 

 

This is where my classic LX-200 10" EMC SCT lives.

Looking through my Meade LX-200 GPS 10” at my game ranch on a chilly night in Lusaka, Zambia.

My two per Zebra (Zippy and Zappy) are usually on hand to provide company!

What about lions and those kinds of animals? That must be pretty cool watching Zebra's walking around you.

I recently picked up this 20 year old LX90 for £500 (650 USD?). It came with a set of Meade 4000 eyepieces and the original bill of sale for £1699!

 

I knocked the seller down a bit due to some rusty screws on the OTA and some blemishes on the inside of the corrector plate. Fortunately, these came off well with a clean and I have replaced the screws with stainless items.

 

My experience of SCT's over the years hasn't been that favorable to be honest but my initial appraisal of this one is that I seem to have a 'good one' - so I'm really pleased and looking forward to putting it through its paces.
