I suppose reported problems are a few individual items. I ordered mine as late as possible to, hopefully, avoid problems.

One thing though, if I swing the scope from straight down to straight up and vice versa, I hear the mirror make a small thump just when it reaches the straight up or down position.
Is that just a normal result of the inherent mechanical construction of mirrorcell/scope, or might there be something wrong?
Any other owners out there who can tell me? I did not touch the focuser before removing the transport lockscrew by the way..

Quattroman, I obviously can't speak for the LX600 and I would listen to those who do have one but I will tell you this. My 8" LX200GPS I bought in 2005 has always made a slight clinking sound when moving it up and down whether or not the mirror is locked. It has never been a problem for me and seems to do it only if I tilt it below the horizon and back up, or vice versa.
I hope you enjoy your scope. Looking forward to any other observations you have.
