Hi there,

Was wondering whether $599 would be a good price to pay for a new LXD75 mount. I'm on a bit of a tight budget and am looking for a EQ mount that is affordable and can handle astrophotography.

I looked around over here in the US and $599 seems to be a very fair price for a new one. The alternative mount that I saw for sale was about a hundred dollars more. The only way I think you would get a lower price on an LXD-75 mount would be a second hand one.

Hope this helps,

And I gripe about the cost of shipping something a few hundred miles!

Mount is not that bad, they will ship the mount only with USPS @ about $150. As soon as you add a OTA to that mount, you looking at $500 with UPS or fedex.
