I have a buyer for my scope who's asking if it has Ultra High Transmission Coating, but darned if I know! I'm not that knowledgeable about scopes. I know it's a nice scope and that's it. It's a Meade LXD55 8" and I saw here that it does have such a coating:

UHTC Coatings: Ultra High Transmission Coatings, Special Coatings, Telescopes, Optical Coatings, Optics, Illumination, Coatings, Astrophotography, Optics And Light, Meade, Mead, Meade ETX, Visual Imagery

Can anyone tell me if this is the case?

Bruce is quite right. If it's a UHTC, it will spell this out on the outer-ring (retainer) holding the corrector-plate in the front of the scope. I believe this first came out in 2003 from Meade, the same year as the LXD55-series of scopes & mounts.

Dave - who has an LX90 marked with UHTC.

PS: Here's an excellent link:
