Had some clear weather here last night but it was very cold..I have been tweaking collimation and I think some of these shots are the best I have captured so far with the Neximage5.. The first 2 shots are with the Canon T3I and the rest are with the Neximage5.. Meade LX90 ACF 10"..

Those are really nice!  I think you are doing very well with that Neximage.

 

I have decided to concentrate on the Moon through this largest supermoon.  For a while, it will be a bit tough to view much else in the evening with the moon light on top of light pollution.

 

Had the Infinity 80 out and had a nice time exploring what I could see with it at high magnification.  I need to stick the LPI-G in it and take some images myself, just for grins. :)

No, I believe I'm gonna keep the LX90 for what I purchased it for, which was Visual, Lunar and Planetary imaging..I believe I may get me a GEM mount and another scope for the long exposure..I was pondering de-forking the LX90 also, but I just love using the scope..I have done way more than I ever expected with the LX90 and I like the convenience of the forks..

Spiral you are one of the best salesman for the LX90 Meade has. I think it's a great scope as well.

LOL..I give credit where credit is due and this scope has just been Awesome to use..Not one problem from it and it has been in very cold temps and never missed a beat..

I have been looking at Meade's APO refractors to put on a GEM for photo needs, but have mercy they are expensive..I have had such good luck with the LX90, I hate to buy another brand scope.. :D
