I just got this scope off the big auction and the optics are horrible. The corrector lens is very dirty and spotted. If someone knows how to service these scopes, I think I have a deal for you. I have another scope on it's way and this one needs to go to someone who knows scope maintenance. The hand controller is 3.34 and the GOTO and tracking works very well. There is no tripod for this scope (it supposedly was pier mounted) It came with a hard case, finder scope, controller and power cord. If someone wants it for $1000 plus $150 shipping, great, otherwise I'll send it back to Meade for reconditioning.
