Meade LX850 with StarLock
Posted 12 January 2013 - 09:46 AM
Building on the foundation of the revolutionary LX800, Meade engineers have taken the next step in developing an easier to use, self-guiding, astro-photographic platform. We’ve kept ...the same innovative concepts like Starlock™ full-time automatic guiding and high-precision pointing, f/8 ACF OTAs with internal Crayford-style two-speed focuser and a portable precision German equatorial mount, but re-engineered it to deliver more performance with less user effort.

I am assuming here that the LX850 totally replaces the LX800, and that people who have previously purchased an LX800 that was returned for repair will receive an LX850?
Note: The "StarLocktm" tab on the LX850 page still says "LX800" in the description. Probably either needs to say "LX800 series", "LX850" or just leave that out all together since it's also to be used in the LX600 series scopes.

Thanks for pointing out the error. There were alot of places where LX800 was mentioned that I had to switch to LX850, I guess I missed a few. It's now fixed.

You missed another one -- the LX800 gallery -- should it now be the LX850 gallery?

I know that's not the answer you want to hear but we want to be 100% sure that the product is ready to go before talking about a ship date.
@gspie - Yes, i'll probably need to change that

Too bad I can't use it with my classic LX200.

I just started using the microfocuser about 3 weeks ago.

You need to hold down the 5 key while pressing the up or down arrow.
It works perfectly.
