I think they really should have waited until next Friday to offer it though...

Looks to me like someone already did and that's the result

Did you get a look at the included eyepices and Barlow? They must be better than Naglers if they come with the

Maybe we can get the moderators to become direct importers for these premium instruments
Well, I could get fired for telling you this, but the guys in upper, upper, uppermanagement here at CN are taking this very seriously, and Allister himself has come out of his silence to tell me he is following the situation "very closely". EdZ is currently making a search of close doubles less than 0.2" apart (with at least 3 magnitude difference) to give this scope the test it deserves. It is no secret that once this scope will hit the market, it will send all others into oblivion, and probably doom a website dedicated to astro-equipment review and discussion. Whatever the outcome, these are the last days of CN as we knew it.

I sure hope some evil person didn't buy them all and is, even now, planning to raise the price

In China,a 114/900 reflector cost only USD 85.And the whole set comes with EQ3 equatorial mount,two 1.25" PL eyepieces,6X30 viewfinder,aluminium tripod and a moon filter:
They said the accuracy is 1/8 wave length.--They must be talking about RMS and it should be spherical surface.But still a bargin for the price.I've seen one in local astro community.Quite good performance on Moon and Planets comparing to its price.The userful power is around 100X.You can see at least two belts of Jupiter.The owner said sometimes he can see four if the seeing is very excellent.But it is too long and not convenient to carry.And the scope is too slow.

Not being picky or snobbish, just not the place for this subject or the latest King is dead one.

BTW,I bought a 8" lx90 recently.Somebody told me that SCT also need re-coating after about 5 years,is that true?I always thought that it doesn't need re-coating.
It's unusual for Meade or Celestron SCT mirrors to require recoating. If not abused the original coatings last for decades. An exception was the optional MCSOG coatings group - but they haven't been used since the 80's. I believe Meade will still replace those under the lifetime warranty because they realize there was a problem with them.
