I assume the're the same scope.

That's an excellent deal for the etx-70.
I'm gonna get one I think. Even if you didn't want the scope, it'd be a great mount for a camera.
It's selling at a lower price than what you'd get it for in the US!
Clear skies,

For astrophotography, since it's an alt-az, you'd have to put it on a wedge to minimise field-rotation. So, you'd probably need some counterweight to prevent straining the motor.

Any ideas how you'd piggyback a camera on something like that?

Looks like a great deal though... Just don't tell too many people or we'll be fighting for the last boxes.... :wink:

Everyone in Ireland buys Meade, and they all buy them from Lidl.

Ah now to decide which lidl store is likley to have the least astronomers and the most telescopes...

I suppose it is pointless to ring them and ask how many the expect to have in each store?
