I am sorry, but this scope package has been sold to the first person who responded (without pictures).


Includes OTA, LXD55 Mount, Tripod, 1 1/4" Adapter, 26mm Plossl, Finder (you will want to replace this with a reflex sight), 12V Adapter cable, Autostar, Homemade Autostart-to-Computer cable, Manuals, and the custom parts described below.

This is for a barely used Meade LXD55 8" SN with UHTC and the Autostar GOTO Mount (LXD55 portion, I suppose). The tripod has been beefed up with stronger connections at the top joints (with wood blocks and new bolts). I also added a carrying handle made of aluminum that attaches to the rings and allows for attachment of another scope or piggyback camera. There is also an expanded Z-shaped eyepiece holder that fits under the GEM head and provides for easy access to 4 eyepieces and a velcro attachment of the autostar and/or a place to put a PDA (on the downslant of the Z).

Views are stellar and the mount tracks quite adequately with my minor tweaks/cleanups.

The scope is is excellent to pristine condition with a collimation probably in order and will be shipped in the original packaging to anyplace in the Continental US via the Buyers preferred method. I will also drive up to 3 hours from the Greater Cincinnati Area for person-to-person delivery.

Pictures can be made available upon request. Just tell me which parts you want to see.

I just don't have enough time or energy to get out with this non-portable scope (1yr old and 4yr old with a Flight Attendant wife who is out of town 3 nights a week).

Call or email me with questions.
