This is a new, complete Mead LXD55 8" with the UHTC coating and includes a 2x3 Barlow. I purchased this scope in August as a gift and then discovered the recipient already owned a telescope. The item is contained in the unopened boxes it came in from the manufacturer. The
price is $900.00 plus shipping. I do not know much about telescopes but, it comes with a tripod and a computerized tracking feature
that has locations of various objects programmed in. I guess you can punch in a code and it will automatically align and track the objects for viewing. If you are interested and more details are needed I will try to find the answers. Thanks!
