I notice the "new" PST is said to be fitted with a "Rich View" tuner and the old rubber tuning ring now looks completely different - can any members comment/ confirm.
The 40mm solar scope also seems to have been dropped from the range???

Do you have a link to the product?

You can see the different tuning ring...
(Also when you look at the Meade product Manual page it talks about "Rich View" tuning and a 30mm internal etalon - the original PST only had a 20mm etalon....)

I can't believe how expensive they are now! I remember when they were $799.

It sounds like they are trying to match the Lunt 50 with pressure tuning since they are their competition.
