Yep!!!  I know what you mean.  You still thinking about deforking that 10"?  I am really liking my wedge but even with it I can't expose as long as I would like to.  My next investment I guess will be an off axis guider and camera.  I need a planetary camera anyway and I am considering the Meade LPI-G color cam.

Nah, I don't think I'm going to defork it..I will miss the forks if I do and I just love using the LX90..It's great and just perfect for visual,lunar and planetary photo..I have been thinking about getting a big go-to 14" DOB and just photograph what i can with the Meade and be happy..LOL..If I do get something for photography, it will probably be an EQ mount and a small APO refractor..When I decide I'm gonna buy a scope, I go all different ways on what to buy..I even considered selling the LX90 and getting a LX200 10" and a wedge.. :D Who knows what I will get when the time comes..
