OK, so a buddy of mine was supposed to purchase this from me but was informed by his better half that in order to maintain family harmony, he might want to reconsider. Not wanting to cause any marital strife, I allowed him to withdraw his offer and am now posting this awesome mount for sale here on AstroMart.
This is a virtually brand new LXD55 Mount on a tripod about a year old. The mount was sent new from Meade just a few weeks ago after a problem occurred with the original. It has only been used a couple of times since then. The little rubber tips (feet) on the tripod itself are somewhat cracked which is a common occurrence with these mounts, but otherwise, everything is perfect. This mount tracks better than any LXD55 I have seen, when properly aligned, it will track for hours with your target perfectly centered.
I am also including a ScopeStuff Aluminum Dovetail for the LXD55 (new $49) and a ScopeStuff dovetail retainer bolt (new $9) which is better than the original that comes with the LXD55 (original included also). The following standard items are also included.
* LXD55 Mount - Near New
* LXD55 Tripod
* 10 Pound Weight
* Meade 497 AutoStar Computer (Newest Updated Software)
* Polar Alignment Scope
* Instruction Manual
Shipped in all original containers to your door for $500 including insurance. I will accept PayPal (Please add 3%), Money Order, Cahiers Check, or personal check (must clear first).
This is one fantastic mount with extras at a great price. Drives are trained perfect, just set it up and track all night. Will post a picture tonight if not sold by then, till then, you can look at my ad number 243420, this is the same mount seen in that ad that was supposed to have been sold at that point.
Thanks for looking,
