It was a kind of the best NEAF ever. Thanks again for stopping by Hutech and Kenko booth.

As pre-discussed with Meade, they prepared an extra new mount – LX80 to loan to us. Thank you, Meade! Fortunately, everything worked well. This mount is very steady. Even if twin 125SDs was hanging in Alt-Az mode, it was still very stable. I didn’t see any hints of the platform flexure either. Although I don’t use this system at the field at high power yet, this initial test assured me it would work out well.

According to Meade, they have started shipping this mount in the limited quantities. Looks very nice mount! Anyway, now 125SD bino has motor-driven tracking capability which makes high power planetary viewing quite more comfortable.  I’m eager to use this system at the outfield ASAP.
