Re: [LX200GPS] Re: TEST RESULTS...UHTC...Can open, worms everywhere.......
it is a $295.00 option on the 12" if you do not pay you will not get it..
they are still using the standard coating on most scopes
- Yes, I realize that, Buck, but I am placing myself six months in the
future, or even one year .
This option just looks too good to be an option.
The $ 295 does probably cover for labor to dismantle, coat, clean,
put back together the scope and ship it out.
Now, if you manufacture coated and non coated scopes, then you need
to have a good follow-up of what you are doing ... Meade not being
very impressive in the QA side ... this forum will fill up with new
lines ... where is my coating ? ... Nice, I did not order it but got
the UHTC ...
I still think (hope ?) that it will be part of the basic unit in the

- John Piper said 2 weeks ago that a few had gotten out the door.. so a couple
less than 10 got the new coating at no charge.... I see your point later
down the road Meade will not Offer the Standard EMC and will only have the
UHTC but let me Assure you.. you will still pay for it as the cost of the
scope will be $4290.00 instead of $3995.00 for a 12" as it is now.. See my

accidentally posted as UHTC. This clarifies.
EMC cannot actually be removed and UHTC applied in its place.
Optical sets are completely replaced to perform UHTC upgrade (GPS
scopes only). I would imagine Meade will continue to offer *EMC*;
schools etc. on a tight budget may want the lower cost option.
Removed optical sets which pass an "AS NEW" inspection could be
recycled in this manner. This is only good business and I would
expect such as a Meade shareholder (theory--I am not). I would do
this if I made the decisions at Meade. I don't look for EMC to go
away anytime soon.
