Disassemble LX200 mount, any advice?


Recommended Posts

As above, I'm disassembling an LX200, mostly to defork the tube. I've done this before with Meade (non LX200) fork mounts but strangely stumped by the two plastic drawers under the fork arms?

Thank you for this, I'll get it a shove and let you know how I get on.
