Nexstar SEs on sale at Amazon
Posted 03 May 2013 - 07:58 AM
When I bought my Meade LX200 several years ago, Meade announced 6 months later they were discontinuing the LX200 and replacing with the next generation.
I'm probably going to buy anyway, but I'd be a little disappointed if they came out with something newer and greater right after I buy.
Anyone know of any impending upgrades/replacements to the Nexstar series?

IF the 6SE is the scope that fits your needs NOW, then buy it and don't agonize even if a newer model comes out .The newer model will likely be pricier if it has a significant new feature.
New cars come out every year but that doesn't keep the old ones from doing everything they could do when new!Same for computers.That 10 year old XP will run today anything it could run 10 years ago;only if some new function is demanded will it fall short.

Why not support Astronomics when it is so easy? They give us this wonderful forum and sometimes a discount for having a Cloudy Nights account. I don't know if this sale item will qualify though for additional discounting. Still, it is so easy...

Of course, the scope came today, and the forecast is for mostly cloudy skies the next several days.
