I have a Meade 10" OTA that originally came with an LX200.
It's a bit over a year old, and has minor cosmetic flaws due
to use and due to removal from the forks. I have numerous
accessories for this scope, some attached (mounting hardware,
focusers). It has the Peterson Engineering focuser upgrade,
which greatly improves the feel of the focuser and removes
the backlash. The optics seem to be excellent (I'm no expert),
and I have never had to collimate it. I have Bob's Knobs but
have not even installed them.
These sell currently for $1400 (with the new coatings), but I
will offer mine starting at $700 depending on the accessories
you want. I will give preference to those who want more of the
accessories (so I don't have to sell those separately).
UPDATE: I can sell the whole package for $1300, including
all accessories listed below.
I will pack and ship to your specs (no original box), and will
*** People keep asking about accessories, so here is what I
can think of right away:
Kendrick dew heater and controller (new)
JMI NGF-S focuser with DRO (attached)
Hand controller for above DRO unit
JMI non-vignetting SCT rear adapter (attached)
JMI Motofocus and hand controller (attached)
original Meade 2 piece visual back
dust cover (included, very scratched up)
Losmandy dovetail bars (one on top, one on bottom)
Telrad bases (2 of them, attached)
Kendrick Kwik focus (hartman mask)
Baader solar filter for above
There may be some more as well.
