This is a very clean ETX-90 with standard (not Autostar) hand paddle. Includes the field tripod, 45 degree prism, four eyepieces (Meade 26mm super Plossl, Meade 18mm WA, Meade 5mm Plossl and a generic but nice 10mm Plossl) and 2x barlow. I will also include a 50ft. car adapter (homemade). I have made a few improvements to this scope including throwing away the annoying, rattly leg spreader and accessory tray. This was replaced with three stainless steel wire rope cables which work much better for retaining the tripod legs. I also machined a nice aluminum plate for the base of the scope to sit on when on the tripod to eliminate the unstable attachment to the tripod that many ETX users complain about. Finally I added some small Teflon bearing pads in the motor housing to greatly improve the stiffness of the RA axis. All in all, this scope is much better than when I got it and will offer a much more satisfying experience than a "standard" ETX-90. Best of all I don't expect to get paid for my efforts so this scope will be sold at a price that will make it a great deal for someone. Asking $375 plus shipping for everything!
I am new to astromart so I do not yet have a "rating". I will do whatever is necessary to make sure you feel comfortable making a transaction with me. (More photos available if interested)
