Meade LPI Imager Repaired!

I was scouring some forums today about the Lunar Planetary Imager (LPI) from Meade. My imager apparently died a few months back, with no PCs recognizing it at all. Some chap from Australia said it might be a cable problem. I then took the cable from my printer, which uses the same type (USB A to USB B cable) and what do you know - red LED on the LPI camera is on! I reinstalled the software on my desktop and the PC recognizes the LPI!!!! So, with a nice fixed LPI camera, and an LX200 on its way back from California with a repaired RA drive, it could be time for some nice images of Saturnand the Moon... Yippee!
