This beautiful Meade LX200 f/6 instrument is in MINT condition, 2 years old. Used by a professional astronomer in Arizona? before me. It has seen use less than 5 times by myself, once under dark skies, on a portable mount made of steel pipes. The images are incredible.
Includes 90-degree diagonal, 40mm 2-inch Gary Russell super plossl, original foam from Meade, + protected nylon carry case w/plywood inserts.
I will NOT SHIP farther than the Rockies or Midwest due to shipping costs and the possibility of damage. I prefer a local buyer and I will drive up to 200 miles to meet the buyer in my hybrid gas-electric car. As an added bonus, the buyer will receive a test drive in my hybrid if a pickup is made in person.
If the buyer is local, I will explain the features and show off the operation of the telescope so that potential buyers may get an idea of how it is used.
I will also sell a pair of older Meade fork arms that fit it, and show off or sell my home-made pipe-mount, upon request. I'm splitting up the transactions because most people who buy this kind of telescope are professionals who mount the "OTA" (Optical Tube Assembly) on a professional pier or mounting system that may cost up to $2000 extra over and above the cost of the scope. :-)
Paypal, check, or MO accepted. Thanks for looking!
