It was the new 16in LX600 on the Max tripod/wedge. They brought that instead of the MAX this year.

I disagree. It looks to be the 20" carbonfiber OTA max without the starlock.

The scope in Joe's link is the 20" MAX. Meade didn't bring the MAX to the 2012 NEAF, they had the 16" LX600 on the Max tripod and wedge.
