Hello all,i was looking for some advice on my telescope problem!I currently own a LX-10 8",i wanted to purchase a larger SCT that would allow me some more astrophotography and to add some detail to deepsky objects.I have a chance to purchase a used LX-5,quartz drive 10" in pretty good shape,with some decent extras.I was wondering if i should try to purchase as much gear for the lx-10(dec motor,finder,counterweights,etc) or is this 2120 being 10 years old be a good upgrade? Thanks for any help you can give me.
