Nice images!

 

When people post things like this, I always find myself studying them like I look at the objects visually through my scope and try to pick out all the details I can.  Lots of fun!

 

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks!! Yes it is! I absolutely love my LX90..I just don't think I could have picked a better scope for me and my intended purpose..It's just a joy to use..I recently added the focus kit from Peterson engineering and it was a great improvement.. ;D

Is the Focuser Kit from Peterson Engineering better than the auto micro focuser from meade? I mean, I want to buy one of the two but not sure!

The Peterson kit swaps out the MEADE washers and replaces them with some roller bearings which improves focus control. It also reduces mirror shift. I am not sure what your referring to, auto micro focuser from MEADE ?

I would save my money for the Starlight Feather-touch focuser..The peterson kit does help with the slop a bit, but I still don't like it to much better than factory teflon/plastic washers..Just don't like the feel of it..My friend has a Feathertouch on his scope and loves it..
