Views of the Meade SCT is taken with the dome slit open. It shows the 4" Meade 2045D SCT piggybacked onto the LX200. The guidance CCD is mounted on the back of the 2045D SCT. The LX200 telescope can be used in the Altazimuth Mode for Optical SETI. It is not necessary to use the Equatorial Mount, as field rotation is not the problem it is for astrophotography if the guidance CCD tracks on the star under observation by the Photon-Counter. The Photon-Counter is mounted at the rear of the LX200.
