Received my LX850 mount yesterday. OTA will be delivered at a later date as none are available in Europe for immediate shipment.
The primary use for my LX850 will be visual astronomy, using it as a mobile setup. I am not expecting to use StarLock a lot and if I do, it will be mounted on top of the 14" OTA. The mount's saddle plate with the second mounting option and the (optional) StarLock counterweight therefor has little to no use for me.
Has anyone replaced the saddle plate with an aftermarket Losmandy style baseplate? What will fit?
