Original LX5 Meade CAT's -Never Die...7 lives???

I've got a great 10" workhorse which has given no problems for the last 15 years, but IS getting a bit dated against the LX200- GOTO crowd.
What do you do to upgrade? I can't trade in, and they say its only worth about A$ 1750. There must be many others out there with similar problems. Any comment.

Unfortunately, concerning the market value of an older scope, it is what it is. The price has to be low to attract buyers on a very tight budget, those unable to come up with the extra money for a contemporary scope.

$1750? That's a pretty high value for a 15 year old scope. The 10" LX200 Classics generally go on AM for less than $2k.
That's 1750 Australian dollars.
