For Sale: Meade LXD 55 AutoStar Mount and Astro Sky “Eliminator Tripod”
This setup is about 5 months old and has only been used a few times and is in like new condition. When I first got the LXD 55 AR5 and tried to use it on with the stock tripod the scope would shake for days when trying to focus. But when mounted on the Eliminator Tripod the scope is steady as a rock!
Goto’s are good after proper alignment, and tracking is excellent. Motor response at the press of the slew buttons is very good as well, with very little backlash.
Reason for sale? This mount doesn’t have autoguider input capability that I want for CCD imaging, and my new Losmandy mount is on its way.
The 5” scope is NOT included, only the LXD 55 Mount, AutoStar controller, counter weight, and if you want it I have the original tripod with accessory tray. The mount will ship in its original shipping box and I will pack the Eliminator Tripod in a separate box.
