    So the 12" LX90 is now out of stock at Amazon!

    Can someone recommend another seller, at the same price of $2599 (free shipping)?

    That is a crazy low price. You could try https://optcorp.com/products/meade-1...ope-1210-90-03 for $300 more... or wait until the next round of discount sales.

    I did see a week or so ago that dealers had the scope advertised at that price for a short time. Maybe last year's model; who knows? But everyone is now listing them for $2899. By "everyone" I mean dealers I have used and trust like High Point Scientific, Astronomics, and B & H Photo, as well as OPT and Agena Astro, with whom I have not yet done business but who have a good reputation.

    Those would all include shipping.

    You may not see the $2599 price again, and if you do, it may be a long wait. You could try calling any of the above and asking if they have any more left at the sale price, e.g. open box, etc.

    99% of the time, when Amazon says "Only X left in stock," they're BSing you, and as soon as it goes to 0 it goes right back up.

    But not this time! Oh, cruel world!
