Final Offer was $701.00 + Packaging+ Shipping

This 8” LX200 was damaged by the airlines. The optics are fine. The focuser is fine. The declination bearings are undamaged. The declination worm and the RA gear are undamaged. The optical tube is slightly bent on one side and is scratched. The keypad works and the wires and connectors are undamaged. The fork-arms have minor scratches. The plastic that covers up the declination gear is damaged and the wires are pulled off from the declination motor. The scope powers up, but I have no idea about the GOTO functions or tracking.

My insurance bought me a new telescope, so I am selling the old one --AS IS-- to recoup my deductible. I think with a little TLC and a couple of replacement parts, this scope will be just fine.

The scope comes with only these items: Scope, Front Lens Cap, Keypad, Declination and Keypad Chords. Again, everything is sold AS IS. I will be happy to send pictures to anyone who is seriously interested and I will answer any questions you have. I am not trying to rip anyone off, just cover my deductible.

I will sell the scope for the best offer over $300 (the optics are worth that!) on 11/20/2002.

The buyer pays for actual packaging (I will need to buy packaging) and shipping costs from Michigan, or I will meet within a 75 mile radius of Kalamazoo, Michigan. I will not ship out of the United States/Canada.

I will accept any form of payment. Personal checks must clear. Buyer pays PayPal 3% fee. Payment must be received by 11/27/2002.

If you buy the 1.25” prism diagonal and/or 8x50mm finder scope and bracket that I also have listed, I will combine the shipping, if you wish.
