I have been a Meade ambassador since well before the program began. It began with the ETX Astro in 1996 when I purchased the ETX and started "Weasner's Mighty ETX Site". Since then I have collected and used many ETX models. In 2003 I purchased an LXD55 8"SC, which I used until it was stolen in 2007. In 2008 I upgraded to an 8" LX90, then an 8" LX200-ACF. The 8" LX200-ACF spent many happy years in my Arizona observatory. In 2016 I upgraded once again, this time to a 12" LX600 (seen in my photo). My ETX web site remains very popular. My Cassiopeia Observatory web site is where my fans go now for current observing reports, astrophotography, product reviews, and more. I am proud to have been supporting the Meade Brand since 1996 and I look forward to becoming an official "Meade Team Brand Ambassador".
