Looking to sell a Meade 10" LX-200 f 10 with accessories. Comes with optical tube in excellent condition. Newest software 3.34, 8 x 50 finder, Meade Electric focuser and Meade counter-balance weight kit. Optics are perfect. This scope has been superb since day one.
Pointing accuracy and tracking are superb with this scope.
This scope does not come with the LX-200 Tripod (I need it for another project).
Have original box and Meade manual as well.
