Meade LX90

I just got a Meade LX90. The tube says LX90. Although the tube is labeled UHTC Coatings, it doesn't say that the scope is an LNT, ACF or EMC. It also doesn't have GPS. The scope came with two manuals, one is for the LNT model and the other has no model reference on the cover. Is the one I have just the stripped down model without the special accessories? Whenever I go on the internet to look it up, it usually gives me one of the models listed above, and usually includes GPS (which, of course, mine doesn't have). Can someone please enlighten me?

I could be wrong, but it sounds to me like you have the EMC...if it were one of the others it would be marked.
Does the perimeter of the glass corrector plate say Schmidt-Cassegrain? If that's so it's likely the EMC given the rest of your description. Still a fine scope!
