Hello everybody !
I was very pleased to discover that Meade ACF-SC 8'' and 10'' LX200 OTAs are now on sale on the Astroshop website - the main online vendor of astronomical instruments in Europe. This is a smart and useful move since until now it was very difficult to find in Europe Meade ACF-SC OTAs except for the LX800 series.
Since I am already the happy owner of a LS6 go-to telescope I am considering to also buy a Meade ACF-SC 8'' LX200 OTA. I discovered on the Astroshop website that the primary mirror of this OTA - and maybe the secondary too - is made of "borosilicate glass" . In the same time the 10'' LX200 model have both the primary and the secondary mirror made of Pyrex glass - as for my LS6.
What is the difference for the visual user ? Is it a matter of thermal adaptation between the two types of glass ? A matter of durability ? Thank you for any clarification.
