anyone know if the Meade Smart Mount on their new scopes is included in the 1.7K software upload? I just uploaded to 1.7K and spoke to Meade but the guy was vague whether it was or not. Meade did say a upgrade to Smart Mount was forthcoming and their site for upload went from 1.6B to 1.7K. I am just curious if this is it. :question:

Mike....

No. 1.7k is compatible with SMT so you would need to update to that to use SMT but it doesn't include it.

When I called to order they said "It will ship by the end of the month" I was ready to say thanks and goodbye.....then I remembered it was Meade I was talking too and asked "What month? Oct or Nov?" He asked me to hold on and when he came back he said Oct. I should have asked Oct of 03 or 04? :) But I'll go with Oct of 03.

Hehe yeah the news blurb from Astronomics said October when I ordered it a month ago. Now it has turned into "shortly." I see they have the software ready and LPI seems to be shiping. I did not think there were any changes to the scope... I just hate waiting :)

Thanks for the update!
