Mike here: Although the new Meade ETX-LS telescope is not scheduled to be available from Meade until March 2009, this feedback page allows current and prospector ETX owners to chime in on their thoughts about the new model. If you don't already know about the ETX-LS, check out these web sites:

I had heard some time ago that Meade may be in some trouble because of
the slow economy and Bankruptcy could be an option.

I hope that this is incorrect info.

The introduction of the LS telescope could be a great shot in the arm.

How does Meade stand when compared to their rival Celestron??

I have several Meade 'scopes and hope that they will be around for years
to come.

There is a article in "Sky and Telescope" for March 2009 that mentions
the Meade ETX LS telescope and also says that it will have a future
review when it is released for sale. Personally I think that with all
the features it has the price is not too far off the mark.
