I found a Lx70 German equatorial 6" refractor and mount both

Customer Question

I found a Lx70 German equatorial 6" refractor and mount both boxed in my parents basement where it has never been un boxed. Is the labeling correct ? I thought that the Lx 70 series only had 5 " refractors? Also is it possible to motorize the mount? ( It is labelled Lx 70 equatorial mount on box)

Hello,

The LX70 was also available with 6" refractors.

Yes, there is an optional motor drive available from the manufacturer for the mount.
