Thanks to all for taking/posting the pictures. I saw the Meade booth picture and no LX80 or LX800 scopes/mounts visible. I guess that is no surprise.

The LX80 was also there at the other end of the booth from the LX800. The boxy mount head of the LX80 made it look larger than I expected.

Did the Meade folks comment on how things are going regarding correcting/fixing the mount tracking errors the first versions have..and have they returned scopes to customers who had to send them back in?
