It appears the weight of the 12" LX850 is being kept a deep, dark secret for some reason. I can't find the weight anywhere, including the Meade website. From the two published weights, I estimate around 47 lbs...but when I look at the LX200 and LX600, the 12" models seems to come in lighter than I would otherwise expect (so maybe as low as 40 lbs for the 12" LX850). Can't order one until I determine my G-11 is adequate for imaging.

The 10" is 33lb, and the 14" is 63lb, so by pure extrapolation, I would guess 48 lb
LX850 with 10" ACF OTA and Takahashi FS 60C OTA -- SBIG STT-8300M CCD with FW8G-STT Self Guiding Filter Wheel and SBIG AO-8 Adaptive Optics -- Camera Control and Image Calibration with Maxim DL/CCD Pro, Image processing with PixInsight, and final composition with Photoshop CS5
