16" LX200-ACF Bolt Pattern for Pier

Hi All,

I am helping an older fellow set up an upgraded 16" LX200-ACF in his observatory. He currently has a ~15 yr old classic 16" LX200 whose electronics were recently zapped (as such, the mount no longer functions). He is using this unfortunate event as an opportunity to upgrade. The telescope is currently mounted in his observatory on the Meade equatorial pier. He wishes to mount the new LX200-ACF on this same pier, so before he makes the purchase, I just want to make sure for him that the bolt pattern on the bottom of the new LX200-ACFs has not changed since the classic LX200 versions of the 90s. If anyone knows the answer to this, I would appreciate confirmation. Thanks!
