This is a super nice used LX90. It is perfectly collimated and the ScopeStuff Collimation kit hasn't been needed, thus it isn't installed (if it ain't broke, don't fix it!!). The scopeStuff Fine Focus Knob is the trick to getting a buttery smooth feel on the manual focus. Also, the ScopeStuff 12v to 15v power converter gives the LX90 the juice it was intended to run on. The Meade #1A Sky Light and Dust Filter seals the OTA from dust contamination and is supposed to filter some of the man-made light glow from our night skies. The Kendrick Dew Shield is the nicest flexible shield on the market. The Pelican 1650 hard case is fitted with JMI foam made for the LX90. This case is built to military specs and has 7 latches, 3 hinges, 4 handles, and built-in wheels. The folks down at the local astronomy club won't know if you are carrying a scope or a nuclear warhead when you bust in rolling this case.
Payment will be by certified cashiers check from your bank of choice. Sorry Paypal, but I must stop the bleeding.
I'll pay the shipping!!!
This scope will be safe in shipment. Short of throwing it into the jet engine of a UPS plane or using it as a jack stand for a FedEx 18-wheeler, it can't be damaged while in the Pelican case.
Local inspection and test drives are always welcome!!
Thanks for looking, and Thanks Astromart!!! **SOLD TO PAUL**
