Description

Here is the first light of my new second hand Meade LX200R 14" sitting on my old EQ8 in my new obsy. I am impressed how well the EQ8 handled the 40+ kg of telescope, and guiding first night was 0.4"/pixel. Colour collected with Canon 60Da (7 x 15 min) and some additional Lum with the ASI1600MM (3 x 15 min) before clouds moved in. The LX200R had subsequently to change name to ACF since "R "denoted Ritchey Chretien and that is not really what it is.
