I just joined up to this forum. I have a 1992(ish) 2080 OTA mounted on an LX6 mount. Since my OTA is f/10, I'd call my setup a 2080 LX6 Premier - and it works wonderfully! It replaces an Explore Scientific ED-102 that I used to have, but I found the 4" APO, while excellent optically, was just too small in aperture. So I sold it and bought the 2080 OTA (the coatings on which are still excellent and so are the mirrors!) and I put it on a EQ5 mount (Skywatcher). That setup worked great, but I really missed the nostalgia of the original Meade fork mount experience (my scope before the APO was a Meade 2120 LX6 Premier). So I found a set of LX6 forks, a wedge and a field tripod and now I have this:
I also picked up the excellent Meade Series 5000 2" dielectric star diagonal for my scope. For eyepieces, I went with mostly Tele Vue Plössls, along with a Fujiyama 6mm Ortho for high power observing:
Anyway, the whole rig works really well. I picked up an old school (black box) Kendrick dew removal system so my observing sessions can go all night. The only thing I have left to pick up for my kit is a decent observing chair. Right now I'm using an old wooden stool which works fine, but I'd prefer one of those chairs where the seat can go up and down a bit.
