I have an opportunity to buy a several year old 8" LX200 with V3.34 precision pointing for about $1000 w/ case.
For about the exact same price I can purchase via astronomics a new LX10 8" with UHTC w/case. ($799 + case).

It seems to me that the 2-star alignment/64K database would be great for the money, but (except for the lack of UHTC), are the optics and quality of an approx 4 yr old LX200 going to be similar to a new 8" LX10??
