Hi, im having trouble deciding between the Lx 90 and 200. I could have a 90 with a full setup or a 200 with nothing! I want to try astrophotography, but im worried i'll be so bad at it that i'll just give up then feel ive wasted the extra money on the 200 over the 90.
On the Meade website they say that both the LX 90 and 200 have the ISS stored on the Autostar. Can the 90 really track the ISS? How claer does it look?
The final question i have is about ease of use, thing like a 'zero image-shift microfocuser' sounds like a just another gimmick to break on the 200. Really what i want to know is 'Is the 200 worth the extra money and time getting used to its features?' (and can it track the ISS?)

All comment and advice welcome

Cheers, Ben (UK)

P.S. I just bought 'Choosing and using a SCT' which is a good read but is a bit old as has nothing about the LX90!
