Was thinking about buying a DSI III and found it has been discontinued?  Is this true? I am just wondering why.  Is there about to be a DSI IV?

Thanks for the reply Mark.  As I researched a little further I found your comments on the Cloudy Nights forum back in July.  I am sure of this, wheels are turning somewhere and improvements are always in the works, if not from Meade, from someone else.  Time will tell.

Haven't been able to find anyone selling the DSI II or III. Are they discontinued. and what would you guys rcommend for someone with an LX90 & LPI who is looking to upgrade?

Yep, they've been discontinued for quite a while. If you're on a budget I'd take a hard look at a Canon 550D. I recently bought a 550D body for $499. The image scale of a DSLR is a good match to an SCT. As far as a direct replacement for the LPI a DBK21 is a nice step up for lunar and planetary imaging.
