This telescope is in excellent condition. This telescope is very easy to use. I have had excellent GOTO performance using the EASY ALIGNMENT method of Autostar. I typically can get the scope set up, leveled, pointed north, and alignment done within ten~fifteen minutes. Then you are off to a night of observing by picking a object from the handset, hit GoTo and it slews quickly to that object. I am planning to buy another telescope and need to sell this one to fund my future scope. The following standard items are included which came original to the telescope: Meade LX90 8" SCT (non-UHTC), Meade field tripod, Autostar #497 handset, and user manual.

I have sold the 8 X 50 finder, prism diagonal, and 26 mm eyepiece that came with the telescope and thus are not included in this sale. Add a diagonal and an eyepiece (readily available from others on Astromart) and you are ready.

However, I have included the Rigel Systems QuikFinder illuminated red bull’s-eye finder which I find much more useful in helping make the initial alignment (i.e. pointing the scope to Polaris to make sure it is pointing north) than the standard finder. I am also including a new Astrozap dew shield for the telescope and a RS-232 serial cable adapter to connect the handset to your computer to update the Autostar handset from the Meade website when they release new firmware.

I have the original box for the OTA and will ship double boxed for the OTA to ensure safe transport. I do not have the original box for the tripod, but will box it appropriately for UPS shipment.

I am asking $1050 shipping included in the continental US by UPS ground. Certified checks and money orders, or paypal.

Please feel free to email me if you any questions. Thanks for looking.
