Group Description

LXD75 Telescopes: The Latest News and Useful Content. Straight Talk: No Commercial Ties.

IMPORTANT TRIPOD ASSEMBLY INFO -->>: Tripod assembly instructions in delivered paper manual misses "bushing" and "E-ring" steps. Oops! If correct placement is not intuitively obvious, see Message #482 and review photos [Photos>MembersArea>JohnStephan] for correct placement. Spread the word. Meade web-site downloadable manual to be corrected.

NEWS: SHAFT EXTENSIONS TO BE SENT TO NEW LXD75-SN10 OWNERS. Meade responds quickly to unforeseen balance problem resulting from upgraded and substantially heavier finder scope and focuser. Sources indicate that the two inch counterweight shaft extensions, considered a prefferable solution to additional weights, have been fabricated and are now being shipped. Counterweight shafts in future production runs will be two inches longer.

LPI UPDATE: MISSING LPIs START ARRIVING. [Previously: Highly likely that missing LPIs are on the way. One source suggests that clerical error caused LPI delivery glitch for first wave of shipments. Missing LPIs to be shipped under separate cover. Shipments now expected to be bundled properly. [Previously: LPIs BACKORDERED? Customers report computerized "AT" models delivered without LPI.]]

DELIVERIES OF ALL MODELS REPORTED. [Previously: Model N6 Shakes Loose. At least one vendor has billed for a shipped N6-EC. Is the "N6 delay" real? Other vendors says "soon".]

FIRST REPORT OF LXD75 DELIVERY filed by John Stephan at 12:45 pm EDT, Aug-24-04. See his photos under [Photos>MembersArea>JohnStephan]. See also his initial report; Message #462, and subsequent messages.
