Very nice fork mounted 8" f/10 schmidt cassegrain purchased by me in 2000. I am the original owner.

This is basically an lx200 without the goto. Excellent star-hopping telescope, rock solid, can slew at four speeds (32x,16x,8x,2x). Runs off 6 "AA" size batteries (rechargeables work great).

Very clean, always stored indoors and covered when not used. Unfortunately, it was used very rarely which is a shame for such a nice scope. Except for a little dust on the corrector and a couple nicks on the wedge from mounting the fork to it, it is close to new conditon.


8" emc optical tube - exact same one as on the original lx200
