This scope is about four years old and in excellent condition. Goto is very accurate, optics are great, and all motions are smooth. I am selling mainly because I just seem to never have time to use it (I've probably had it out less than two dozen times since I purchased it). I store it in my house and has been meticulously kept.

Note that this is the native f/6.3 version which is generally preferred for CCD imaging. It does, of course, work great for visual observing as well (which is all I ever used it for), offering a wider angle view than the f/10. This is especially nice for observing DSOs.

Accessories mainly include the items that came with the scope. This includes a 26mm lens, hand controller, manual, tripod, diagonal prism, dust covers, AC power supply and finder scope. I am also including two higher-power Plossel eyepieces and a nice customized foam-lined metal carrying case for the accessories.

The firmware on this scope is 3.34 and so supports all the latest refinements made to the LX200 line just prior to the release of the GPS models including 2-star alignment in alt-az mode and "high-precision pointing". So whether you are a visual observer or if you're looking to get into CCD imaging at a good price, this is an ideal scope to do it with.

My strong preference is to not ship this scope. I would prefer to have the buyer pick it up at my home in central Massachusetts, or (for gas) at some agreed-upon location not more than perhaps two or three hundred miles away.

Price is $1450.00.
