Hi has anyone received shipment on this scope? I returned a WO 132mm,(big dissappointment) and am on the AP 160 waitlist. So I am looking for something in the meantime.

I'm interested if anyone has received shipment on this meade scope or if a review is available on this particular model. Adorama appears to have the OTA in stock with free shipping.

I've looked around on various websites and the most believable info I could find is one vendor who claims that Meade told him about two weeks ago that the first units will ship in August. I hope to pin down the Meade rep at NEAF later this month on when they will ship.

I asked the Meade rep at NEAF specifically when they will start selling this scope. He said that the Meade just put off the expected date of first delivery to September 2007. He also said that availability will be very limited initially and that if you expect to get one of these scopes anytime in 2007 you better pre-order as soon as possible. I asked if Meade was considering dropping this scope and he said "No way! We have too much money invested in it."
