This scope has been well cared for and is in excellent condition. It’s been babied in the garage (always covered) and rolled out to the driveway for use. Optical performance, pointing and tracking accuracy has always been exceptional. I bought it new in mid-1998. The blue paint on the optical tube and finder is in concours condition. The optics are likewise flawless.
Included is the following:
Meade LX-200 10” f/10 2500mm goto telescope.
1 Meade adjustable Tripod (with a small dent thanks to UPS that does not impair performance)
1 Meade Super Wedge
1 Meade 120V to 18V adapter with 25’ long cord
1 Meade serial cable for computer connection
1 Meade 8 x 50 finder scope
1 Meade 2” diagonal with 1-1/4 adapter insert
1 Meade #2408150 2” T-2 adapter (formerly used to connect CCD camera)
1 Meade 26 mm Eyepiece Series 4000 (1.25)
1 Meade #140 Barlow
1 Meade Series 4000 focal reducer (f6.3) and field flattener, multi-coated
1 homemade dew shield
1 homemade optical tube balance rack and pinion setup
1 Kendrick optical tube Dew Heater with variable power box
1 1-1/4 Orion moon filter
4 1-1/4 Orion color filters, #58, #25, #15, #80A
Pointing accuracy has always been exceptional. This scope has been checked with a laser collimator every year and has never required any adjustment.
I am selling this very complete setup for 2,300.00 dollars + Shipping. I prefer cashiers check or money order. I have all the original boxes and will ship in them.
