Several years ago I purchased a floor model LX200 GPS 10". While the optics are acceptable, I have been considering picking up a new LX200 AFC OTA for better imaging capabilities.

I am happy with the mount fork), and it appears that the LX200 GPS mount for the ACF line is identicle to the original GPS mount.

My concern is the bolt patern for the ACF OTA (for their LX200 GPS mounting) being different.

Does anyone know if the ACF OTA follows the same patern? Will it be a direct swap? (I am aware of the RA and Dec alignment issues)
