I have an old 8 inch LX10. I was wondering if the OTA can be mounted on the LX80 mount? Would it require significant modifications?

I believe the main thing would be to remove the old attachments and install a dovetail bar to match the new mount. I have not seen exactly how the LX10 OTA is hooked up to the mount, but I expect there would be at least two holes to tape over where screws go in. If the correcter plate (glass plate in front) has to come off, be sure to verify where marks are to make sure you get it back exactly the way it came off. It matters which way it goes onto the scope.
