Hi all,

A couple months ago I had my Meade LX-90 out for a tune-up and was going through some withdrawl... so I got a tide-me-over scope and that was the Meade DS2114ATS (the newest version of the DS series--a 114mm reflector with the Autostar).

I really do not have a need for it anymore and I only used it a few times so I thought I would put it up for sale.

Its 114mm reflector of average quality (chineese made), has the Autostar #494 controller and is an alt-az goto scope. It comes with a 2 inch focuser with a 1.25 adapter. Also the 2 EPs were never used as I have my own. All manuals and original materials included with this scope as well as original boxes/packing.

Its a pretty good starter scope and is lightwieght and portable. The views, when collimated, are actually not that bad. I had probably the best view of the helix nebula and the north american nebula through it (using a narrow-band filter).

I made some modification to the secondary holder as the plastic screws for collimation were not well constructed and were not placing adequate pressure against the mirror for tilting when collimating. Thus there is a small piece of cardboard in place to give leverage to the screws (it doesnt affect the obstruction at all).

I got it for $395 new.
Will part with it for $300 shipped (UPS Ground - anywhere CONUS).

Thanks,
Elliott
