    In the July 2001 Sky & Telescope Dennis di Cicco gives a very favorable
    review to Meade's new 8-inch LX90.
    In it, he says
    "Another refinement is in the telescope's satellite-tracking ability.  The
    motion now 'flows' smoothly (rather than with discrete 'steps') as the LX90
    follows the varying speed of a satellite across the sky...  [Fresh orbital
    elements are needed.]  Nevertheless, the LX90 appears to me to have the most
    sophisticated satellite-tracking features of any general-purpose commercial
    The bad news is that the telescope retails for a gulp-inducing US$ 1695.
    FYI, FWIW, YMMV, caveat lector, etc., etc.
