$1550 invested...........looking for $850 plus shipping if necessary. Price is open for negotiation. I would prefer not to ship the scope and am willing to drive up to 150 miles or so from So.Jersey to deliver and I will set it up for you if you want. If I have to ship, it will go Fed EX ground. Much safer than UPS.
Now for the particulars:
Excellent performer and well traveled. It has been my "child" and is very well taken care of.......LOL
Scope is 3 years old and in like new condition. Holds collimation like a rock. I have cranked this baby up over 500X on the moon with tack shape images.
Drive base tracks very well with good polar alignment.
Focuser has some minor mirror slop but not enough to be offensive.
Corrector plate has a couple of very, very small dew stains that will clean right up but does not effect images. There is a small dent in edge of the lens cover from when the wind blew the cover off my deck and it hit the sidewalk. I reshaped it and it fits just like new. No dings or scratches on the tube or wedge but the tripod has some surface rusting on the face of the legs. Very minimal but noticable.
Have origanal Meade shipping carton for the OTA and wedge.
Telerad base and Meade balance rail in the image are not included.
If interested please don't hesitate to call me or email for more info.
Thanks for looking
