Excellent, like-new LX-90 for sale in Northern California. Great GOTO puts objects in the field of view everytime. Very good optically: I've viewed Saturn and Jupiter at 500x (62.5 times aperture inches) on nights of steady seeing. Very quiet motor drives on both axis that you cannot hear. Accurate drives keep objects in the eyepiece even at very high magnifications without any wobbles, even in alt/az mode. Used infrequently: still on the first set of C-batteries used to power the telescope drives. The only modification I've made is to add velcro to the back of the autostar controller and the telescope supports so you can attach the controller and not hold it for the entire viewing session (why hasn't Meade thought of this yet?)

Comes with: Meade 8x50 finderscope on quick-release bracket; Televue mirror diagonal (much better than the supplied diagonal); Meade series 4000 26 mm plossl eyepiece; visual back; autostar controller; heavy duty tripod. I will ship in the original Meade shipping boxes.

Contact me if you want more information or more digital pictures.
