Meade 8" LX90 SCT bought new last December and hasn't been further
than my apartment balcony since. Beautiful instrument was well-
collimated right out of the box and gave some stunning views even in
my suburban location. Have to sell due to financial difficulties.
In addition to standard accessories (1-1/4 diag., 26mm ep, 8x50
finder, field tripod) I have added:
- carrying case for OTA ($250 new from JMI, Inc.)
- LX200 wedge and adapter to fit LX90
- 8" glass solar filter ($160 new from Orion)
- SCT adapter for 2" diagonal (Televue)
- 6:3 focal reducer (Celestron)
- Meade broadband nebular filter
- set of Bob's Knobs (collimating thumbscrews; not yet installed)
$1550.00 firm for all of the above. Also willing to sell scope with
only the standard accessories for $1300.00. For the standard package
and only some of the extras we can negotiate.
Would very much prefer not to ship so this ad is directed mainly at
Chicago/northern Illinois residents or anyone who could drive to my
location in NW Chicago suburbs. It would be ideal if potential buyer
could check out the equipment first.
Please email with any questions.
