LXD650 Bang for Buck or Bust?

LXD650 Bang for Buck or Bust?

There was a buzz on astro sites that Meade outlet was selling a LXD650/102ED package that included a goto computer for $1,000 less than Meade dealers. Interesting I thought. I had just sold a C9.25 and GM8. Could I possibly go from a big scope to a little scope? No way, that is, unless the little scope's mount could carry a big scope. I posted a question in the forum - can the LXD650 handle a 9.25" SCT? I got a couple of replies. Both said it would carry a C9.25, better than a GM8, and might even handle an 11" SCT. Sold.
