For sale: Meade model 293 - 60mm equatorial mount f/15 refractor. It comes with:
Four 0.965" eyepieces - 25mm, 12.5mm, 9mm, and 4mm
0.965" prism diagonal
0.965" 3X Barlow
Equatorial mount with 100 tooth RA worm gear and semi-flexible slow motion control cables
There are a couple chips in the tube paint, but no dents. I’ll throw in an extra 2 pound counterweight that fits the counterweight bar, bringing it up to 4 pounds total.
The telescope is actually pretty good when used with better eyepieces. I’m including a makeshift 1.25 to .965 adapter (it’s that piece of copper tubing adapter in the photo), it’s not perfect, but it can show what the scope can do. I’d recommend buying a new hybrid diagonal that fits the .965” focuser and allows use of 1.25” eyepieces. I've found a source of economical hybrid diagonals for $15 and will send the link on request.
I’m asking $50 plus shipping. Total weight boxed is 15lbs if you want to figure shipping. If you live close to eastern Connecticut I may even drop it off. I’ll take money order, cashier’s check or PayPal. Thanks for looking! - *sold*
