It looks like Meade are trying to promote the ETX LS series again - so let us suppose that they are looking to do some product development to make this great scope even better
We're used to the features of version 1,6a - what would you want to see in the next version of the firmware?
My starters ...
So that it is safe to use with a 2" diagonal and dSLR, I would like to be able to set a MAXIMUM ALTITUDE limit - so that I can avoid the risk of jamming the accessories into the mount.
A fast sort and search facility, so that you can navigate to satellites/asteroids/comets/stars quickly rather than having to go through the full list one by one (even 8 by 8 is really unhelpful when there are thousands of items in a catalog)
Enable the use of a Bluetooth or wifi dongle so that users can control the scope with a smartphone or tablet. We've already got a spare USB port, so let's make use of it.
Enable firmware refresh/update from a USB stick - so that the next generation of users don't need to search for Mini SD cards. Even when the scope came out, Mini SD was a very niche format, even more so now.
