I was wondering the same thing, but it seems that the web updates are trailing the actual shipments, so hopefully it won't be long. I've ordered a set of filters, a spotting scope, and an eyepiece. There isn't any clear weather in the forecast at the moment anyway.

I ordered just before 5 PM eastern time on Friday and got a shipping notice around 4 PM on Monday. Give them a call and ask for your order's shipping status.

The last time I ordered from Meades site was a couple close out items and as I recall , notification did leave a lot to be desired , though I did receive what I ordered . I believe they use a third party company that handles this stuff . They need improvement on communication IMO .

Thanks for the replies. Over the past 90 minutes, I did receive a shipping notice. I ordered the diagonal and eyepiece combo. I ordered the APM for my LX80 also from them and didn't remember how long it took.

So I went back to see when the box would be delivered, found it was out for delivery today....5 minutes later, UPS rang the doorbell. Works for me. Should be clear tonight too.

My set arrived today. It will be fun to see what these do visually on the planets. I don't even own a CCD camera.

Mine should be here next week. And yeppers, for some reason the shipment notices and web site updates are days behind the actual shipping dates. That's better than the other was around!

IR blocking or not that's just $5 a filter. For that price I figured what the heck. Mine just came today, and they look great. I have a ASI120MM, so if I grab a filter wheel, I can give LRGB imaging a try now, and order nicer $359 Baaders next year. That's the plan anyway.If nothing else you get 3 nifty visual filters, plus a spare IR filter all for $20!

Mine arrived a few days ago. This was first light with the filters through a 6 inch Apo with a ASI 120 MM.
