Thanks for the reply. I have read the previous postings about new vs.
old and will certainly check this one.


Subject:	ETX125 old vs new

I purchased an ETX125 on 5/10/2003, but shipping was delayed a week or
more because, I was told, there was a great demand for them and it was
still on the way from the factory. The box it came in has P/N 0515-03-01
on it, which tells me, from reading your website, that it might not be
the new model. (But I have not performed the other tests yet.)

My question is, when did Meade stop making the old (-01) model and start
making the new (-03) model? If it was well before May 2003, then I was
mislead by the dealer. I won't mention the name of the dealer, of
course, until I have more information. Thank you for any assistance you
can provide.

Mike here: I'm not certain of the exact date that any particular design change was implemented, let alone when any specific dealer received any particular shipment. You might check the article ""New" vs "Old" - How to Tell" on the Helpful Information: Buyer/New User Tips page.
