Glad to be of help, as little as it was.
I really have no clue about the LS or LT series of scopes. All I have seen is pictures of them and have read a little of discriptions.
As a mechanical engineer, I think any new thing that breaks old boundaries is going to have a growth curve before the bugs get worked out. With this scope, I am sure it is a very new adventure for everyone involved, at least in terms of the moving parts. computer related things, and actually using satelites to point the telescope. Yes, these things have been done at great expense. Putting it in the hands of the general public at a relatively low price is a different matter.
In general, there is always a crunch to get the product concieved, engineered, produced, and delivered to the customer while keeping the total investment down as much as possible. No matter how hard people try, things slip through the cracks and problems show up with the first runs of the product. The question is, how will Meade respond. I mean this from both the perspective of the thought process and decisions made as well as what can the company physically and financially do, using good financial judgement.
From my personal experiences with Meade and people that work for Meade, I think, no matter how fast or slow or effective the response is, they will be doing the best they know how to correct issues with this new scope.
It will take some period of time for the issues to be resolved and things to settle down with it, then it will be really good.
Hope this helps,

This is actually the first reported post I have seen in several weeks. Mike has been doing a good job, I think, in preventing such items. This one just made it through. I think he is trying to find out if there are some better tools available to use in this effort.

'Scuse me! In the preceding post it is Mark not Mike. That was not really a typo, it was more like a "braino."
