Before I scorched the electronic brains out of my original Meade LX-200 GOTO fork mount, I got to use it a few times in Belgium with a colleague who had a gigantic 10" Meade Newtonian. That thing looked like a water heater.

He knew his way around the sky. He usually had what he wanted in the eyepiece before I got the GOTO scope tracking.

The GM-8 is not GOTO, though. I have to get it there myself, then the mount holds it perfectly.
