It is I with the FrankenScope... I took a base 10" XT tube assembly, and mounted it on an LX200 fork mount for about a year. It was a novel idea, but had some drawbacks. However, the base 10"XT is a great scope on it's normal dob mount.
I think you'll like the 10" xt10i intellescope, but it doesn't have motors on it either, which will require you to continue to push the scope to keep up with the object you want to look at. You might consider the xx10g which is the goto version, that has motors and will track the object while you are viewing it.
Because I liked the xt 10 inch optics, I ordered a 14" XX14g back in 2012 and have had a great time with it. The tracking is excellent and the goto is good.
Hope this helps you out.
