I am re-listing this ad and appreciate any interest.
I have had my Meade 12" LX 200 GPS UHTC since July 2003. I purchased it new. I am very pleased with it, but after a few aborted attempts, I have decided to purchase a large dobsonian. I have used the telescope locally here in central Maine approximately a dozen, perhaps fifteen, times. The images and mechanics are excellent and I have taken extremely good care of the telescope. Anyone interested is more than welcome to visit or we can meet if not too far away and you can review and look through it.
The go-to works perfectly whether I use the Meade supplied 26mm Super Plossl, 22mm Nagler, or a 13mm Nagler I used to have.
I purchased the following accessories which I would include:
1. Peterson Mounting Assistant (installed).
2. Peterson Focus Kit (I have not installed this; the focus has been fine).
3. Scopestuff "Bob's Knobs" (installed).
4. Scopestuff counterweight system (installed).
5. Kendrick Dew controller, element for corrector, and a flexible dew shield.
6. Meade cigarrette lighter adapter/cord.
7. Stainless steel screws (installed).
8. Large Meade Padded Hard carrying case for eyepieces and
9. TeleVue Plossls: 15mm and 11mm.
10. Meade 26mm Super Plossl (included with telescope).
Pictures are available upon request. The price is $3100, negotiable, and I will do what I can to limit shipping costs or share travel for a pick up. I live in Maine, but often travel to the NJ/NY area.
