When I received my first LX600 12" in early 2016 I quickly became frustrated with focus changes when slewing or tracking due to the lack of a primary mirror lock.  A second LX600 12" I received experienced the same problem.  After many months of development and testing a new product is now available which adds a Primary Mirror Lock to the LX600 12" telescope, without requiring any disassembly.  

If your LX600 12" f/8 telescope experiences a focus shift during slewing or tracking, you will want to read my product review:
Disclosure: I created the concept for this mirror lock and ScopeStuff turned it into a high quality product.  I receive no compensation from sales of the LX600 12" Primary Mirror Lock.
