TPO Mounting Assistant for Meade LX 200 Telescopes
This is a mounting and accessory plate for all Meade scopes mounted on a Standard Field Tripod or Giant Field Tripod in alt-az mode as well as several Meade equatorially mounted models. It makes mounting the LX200 or LX90 onto the tripod a safer (for the scope) and much easier (for you) task!????
The table measures 11-7/8" X 22", and is CNC milled of 1/4" aircraft grade aluminum plate. It is finished with a black, baked-on powdercoat finish for extra durability, and includes a two precision bubble levels. The edges and corners are rounded and smooth for observing safety.
Not only is this very cool accessory a mounting plate, but it is a handy accessory table, too. It holds three 1-1/4" and four 2" eyepieces, and includes a port for your hand controller.
The OP-Table will not fit Celestron tripods. It is especially made with the alt-azimuthly mounted LX200 or LX90 in mind, but will also work with the 7" and 8" if mounted on the standard (not Super) wedge. This means it will also work fine with the LX50 scopes, or most any other Meade scope mounted on a Standard Field Tripod.

Hi, Ive been looking for something like this...I see it states it fits the LX200, im wondering is that also mean the LX200R GPS? or just the classic. thanks
This will fit both the LX200 Classic as well as the LX200 GPS / R / ACF scopes as the tripod mount hole pattern has not changed for the newer scopes.
