I am offering to trade my Nexstar 5" for your 8", 10" or 12" LX-200 fork arms, base, controller (must be ROM V3.34), and power supply (everything I'll need except OTA and tripod). Must be in good working order with accurate goto and tracking. Please describe.

The Nexstar 5" includes:
-Very Good optics
-Bob's Knobs for collimation
-Later software version (quicker slews, more accurate go-to & tracking than earlier versions)
-120VAC Power Supply
-Aluminum Nexstar Tripod
-Red Dot Finder
-SCT 1-1/4" Visual Back
-1-1/4" Diagonal (it's kind of cheesy)
-Nexstar 25mm Plossl
It's a great go-to travel setup.

Currently the fork arm is set up to mount the original OTA or quickly change to other scopes, cameras, etc. I will include adapted set up as is with an additional mounting plate or can put all back to the original factory arrangment. The current set up offers a lot of flexability

The reason for offering the trade is I need a little more tracking accuracy for the type of photography I am doing.

If near Houston, Texas then could meet halfway. If not, each of us would handle shipping cost from our end.

I prefer trade, but will consider other offers.
