Hi everyone... I have a stupid question.
What are the differences between the LX90 and LX200?
I'm doing research for when I get good enough to have a big scope.

How transportable is the LX200? I take my EXT125 with me everywhere ( I drive a semi so I get around and love the portablity of the EXT but want a LX200)

The LX200 8 inch is very transportable.
The 10 inch is a bit bigger but is still transportable.
Now keep in mind there is a considerabl;e size difference from the etx 125 but the LX200 is still very trans portable.
for many years I took my LX200 10 inch scope all over with no problems.
