From the reviews:"This book is a lot more than the main title suggests since it helps a prospective telescope purchaser select and use the LX200 and other Meade models. ... This is an ideal book for those already owning a Meade telescope and especially as a stimulus to get existing telescopes out of mothballs and back into use. ... the book majors on the Meade LX range it will be of value to other GOTO-telescope users. I will be referring to my copy on a regular basis." (Tom Boles, The Observatory, Vol. 131 (1220), February, 2011)
