      I agree with you!!  I bought my LX90 in 2006 but it is a 2005 model- before LNT and GPS.  It has quite good optics and the goto is spot on and I have never trained the drives- leave well enough alone.   I do not understand  the need for LNT and GPS.  A 2 star alignment is so easy to do and it is faster to do alignment yourself than have the scope do it automatically.  I keep thinking about something different, but since I have never had any trouble with the scope, I have decided that should just stay with what I have.

      Thanks Fivel for your helpful comments,

      At present I am simply gathering as much information as possible before I put my hand into my pocket.
      Once bought it is too late to have second thoughts.
      My telescope is a very old lx90 classic made around 2000.   (no bells and whistles) However, it is a very good telescope.  It has never given me a moments trouble, the go-to is accurate and I see no reason to change it yet.  Over the years I have added a few things like a new diagonal I bought some quality eyepieces.
      I have the mpression,reading these page over the years,that Meade has lost the plot.  They have introduced more and more complex gadgets which seem to give the user trouble.  My simple old classic just keeps on going trouble free.  If I am a Dinosaur then I am a happy Dinosaur

      Very best wishes
