Selling a Meade ETX 70 with autostar controller and more!
Autostar scopes are revolutionary and make astronomy easy and fun. The only reason I'm selling it is because I'm moving up to a bigger scope, but it's perfect for a beginer. Autostar makes everything so easy!
Everything you need is here - Tripod with accessory case and blue travel bag, hard case for the scope, eyepieces, manuals, more. I even have the ORIGINAL BOXES TO SHIP IN!
This scope also comes with several key extras that you need to know about:
* A star finder - this red dot laser star finder helps you site down the telescope to find that object and get the telescope close on to it so you can then switch to the telescope and see it up close. A finder is just mandatory.
* 2x Barlow lens - makes the two included eyepieces (9mm and 25mm) double power!
* Flexible Focus extender
It's a great great scope. I've also stabilized the main star diagonal mirror, which means it does not flip down. Meade designed it to flip for astro-photography but this scope is too small for that and doesn't have the right mount (needs an equatorial mount, not the altazimuth mount) for imaging. The flip makes the mirror get out of alignment so I stabilized the mirror permanently in place to give solid images all the time, every time. Please email any questions you've got and I'll be glad to help you out. This is one of Meade's most popular scopes and if you try it you'll see why. Come and get it!
PRICE: $285 obo.
