BORG BINO + Meade LX80

Take look at the expected setup. (Dear Meade, please allow me to do this, thank you!) BORG 125SD bino weighs 35 lbs including the platform. Meanwhile, Meade advertises the payload up to 70lbs. So I expect this mount is capable of handling 125SD bino even if two scopes are set side by side in alt-az mode. It solves my long-term problem – motor-tracking at high power planetary viewing. I’m eager to see the commercial unit will be ready ASAP.
