This 5" f/9 telescope has custom made optics. Meade could not refigure the original optics and after a 4 month wait the OTA was returned with NEW optics, made for this telescope. The LXD650 mount has the #1697 computerized drive system. Also included is the #1207 electronic focuser, plugs into the control panel. This setup allows complete remote operation (pointing and focusing, great for CCD imaging) via a PC running compatible software. The original software is included. I've also replaced the original straight through finder with an AstroPhysics 8 x 50 right angle finder (it's much easier on the neck when hunting those objects near zenith).

Other Items included:
Field tripod
2" mirror star diagonal
2" to 1.25" adapter
AC power "brick"
DC power adapter (run the mount directly from a 12 volt battery)
25' fused power cord
Kendrick dew heater strap (no controller)
Nice custom made wood carring / storage box for the OTA
Custom made carring / storage box for the mount
Dovetail plate
Original shipping boxes for the major items (tripod, mount, OTA)
PC serial port adapter and 25' PC to mount cable
32mm Super Plossl eyepiece
25mm KE eyepiece
12.5mm Ortho eyepiece

All this would cost over $4300.00 new, I'm asking $3000.00
Buyer would be responable for shipping charges. I would however prefer pickup or I can meet within a reasonable distance from southeast Michigan.

Reason for selling. I'm moving to a darker sky and I want a bigger scope. Unfortunately I can't have both.

Please call (810) 234-4190 (early evenings EDT) or (810)919-0763

P.S. I'll at least listen to reasonable offers.
