As of the guide scope.
There are several brands available on the market today and Myself i have a few different 1s but ive been mainly using the Meade 80 mm APO for guiding.
It has great optics and I also use it as a widefield platrorm for imaging.
In the end the choice will be yours .
If you plan on using the guide scope on the LX90 for guiding or imaging I strongly suggest the Losmandy system for mounting it.
IMO you cant find a better system.

You will find this mentioned in many books and articles about astrophotography. Of course an off-axis guider has also downsides like a smaller field of view and fewer guidestars to choose from.

I use the losmandy system here to mount all of my scopes on the LX200R 10 inch.

Are you using a computer hooked up to your scope, or the autostar only?
I'm trying to learn how to "train" my scope on my wedge (that I just got), and hope to take some photos. I'm a newbie big time, and most of what I read doesn't help much. I don't think that I will be able to accomplish what I want to until my observatory is finished (couple of months from now).
good luck, and if you get to make some images please tell me where to go to see your work.
