      Per <http://www.skyandtelescope.com/news/10819876.html>:

      "... This week more details of Meade's plans became available. In an
      " e-mail response to questions posed by Sky & Telescope, Muellner
      " said that all high-end manufacturing will be moving to the company's
      " international partners.
      " During this transition the production of some telescopes will be
      " temporarily suspended, and a few other models will be discontinued.
      " Meade said it anticipates no interruption of its popular 8-, 10-,
      " and 12-inch LX200R telescopes as well as its 8-inch LX90GPS
      " Schmidt-Cassegrain reflectors. The 10- and 12-inch LX90GPS models
      " will remain in production to fill existing orders and then be
      " suspended until Spring 2008. Likewise, existing orders for 14- and
      " 16-inch LX200R telescopes will be filled, and then production will
      " be halted until the second half of 2008 — except for the
      " fork-mounted 14-inch, which will be suspended indefinitely. The
      " company's heavy-duty MAX Mount, and all sizes of its fork-mounted
      " RCX400 telescopes, will also be suspended indefinitely. The only
      " instruments to be discontinued outright are the Calcium-K
      " (ultraviolet) models in the company's Coronado line of solar
      " telescopes and filters.
