Joe And Stuart With The Meade LX200 12 in. Telescope
Here we are installing the new 12 in. Meade LX 200 telescope in the new observatory. After much discussion with the telescope, it did decide to cooperate. Later we mounted a 4 in. Celestron 102 HD as a guide scope on the 12 in. Meade using the Losmandy mounting rings and rail system. The Losmandy system is a bit expensive, but after using it... IT IS A BARGAIN. You'll notice the inside walls are not yet finished. As you can tell by the expression on Joe's face, we were caught off guard by the paparazzo's.
