I would like to know who has received one and what size?

I was told to wait until May for my 14" LX850, but I am hearing it might be coming in much sooner. I am very curious how this post pans out.

Just called Meade distributor in Saudi about the availability of the scope.
was hesitating between LX850 14" VS CGE Pro 14" but settled on the first choice because of the mount,, read the new 1x850 using machined brass instead of aluminum to provide more stability.
Hoping to wake up my atik 383l+ soon

For the second night, I was able to get my AO-8 into the mix -- the Starlock Guided so well that the guide star I used for my AO-8 stayed on the chip at the very edge of it's FOV and just the AO-8 miror was used for tilt -- not the guide motors.
Here are links to my two images from it. M81 was first light, M51 was the next night.

Btw, it didn't start in Cali. Starts in Mexico.

My most recent email with on of their VP's, when I asked about the status of my 14, was that he would contact the guys down in Mexico and find out about it.
If they are in deed shipping them to Irvine for a final test that would be great and most welcome in my opinion but it doesn't seem likely. I'll hopefully hear something today on it and I'll ask for clarification.
Irvine is a 45 minute drive from me. I would hand deliver their beta unit back to them and pick up my new one. This really has me curious about what is going on. I called their support earlier to ask about mine. They could not find my order. That doesn't bode well for me. I've left voice mails and emails that haven't been returned either. I'd like to give them the benefit of the doubt that they are just really busy and my stuff is being handled but I am getting very frustrated.
