There has been much speculation about the new LX mounts before anyone has actually had their hands on one.

I received an email from one of the popular So Cal (not OPT) retailers saying the LX800 is now available in 10" and 12". I was however extremely amuzed by the tag line of their message.

Do you think they actually meant what they said ? Here is a cut and paste. See if you catch the punchline. I don't think it is what they meant.

NEW MEADE 10" & 12"

LX800 Telescopes

LIMITED QUALITY IN STOCK NOW

Maybe the dealer is not sure about them yet either !!!

Yeah, this may be one of the first examples of their "Limited" edition:

Operator error? Or was it: "the paint's dry, ship it!"? 8)
