My long range plan has a 16" LX200 in it, but my co-observatory owner, has tried to talk me out of it because of quality issues. I own and love my 10" LX200 and a 16" just seemed like the next logical step. How about it 16" LX200 owners, had any issues with your scopes?

No, although I have looked through our one at school (Ohio State Univ) and it's very nice. Although it's not 2x the size of my 8" LX200, it's more like 5x the size...it's ridiculously huge. I'd definitely contact a dealer and LOOK through the scope and test it out, but if you get a good sample... I'm sure it'd be a great scope. Just my 2 cents.
