   (Below) My imaging and viewing setup is as follows: Meade10" LX200R, Televue NP-127, and my .990 Strehl, Carbon Fiber TMB 80/480 all mounted on my Mountain Instruments 250.  My imagers are the SBIG ST-10XME w/CFW10 (LRGB + Ha, Sll, Olll) and a ST-402 autoguider w/LRGB filters.  This all comes to just 60lbs. and well within the mount's payload capacity.  WhooYa!...
