Great condition 8" Meade LX50 with tripod and all original accessories. The optics are like new and it tracks fine. The heavy duty forks are perfect for astrophotography. RA and Dec motors work with the hand controller in all four directions with all four slew speeds. It has a faint, cosmetic scuff on the OTA that does not affect the optics at all. The RA lock knob also has a couple cosmetic marks on it, but it still locks securely.
