Wow - this is new...

Celestron just announced a whole line of new GOTO gem mounted scopes. I found this info on the astronomics website:

ASC9, a 9.25” Schmidt-Cassegrain at $1699
ASC8, an 8” Schmidt-Cassegrain at $1299
ASC5, a 5” Schmidt-Cassegrain at $1099
ASC6, a 6” achromatic refractor at $999
ASC10R, a 10” f/4.7 Newtonian reflector at $1149
ASC8R, an 8” f/5 Newtonian reflector at $949
and ASCM, a computerized go-to German equatorial mount with an approximate 30 lb. payload capacity at $699.

Cool thing is that they sell the mount seperately - sounds like a little healthy competition for Meade's LXD55 line of scopes.
