I purchased this scope new from Oceanside Photo and Telescope approximately 1 year ago. It has been nothing but a gem to use.

I am selling the scope due to the fact that I purchased a smaller scope that is a lot more portable. Minneapolis has a lot of light pollution, so I need to take the scope to a darker location.

It is in good condition, optically and cosmetically. There are a couple of scraches here-and-there from normal use, but nothing that effects the performance of the scope. I have done a modification to the focus mechanism that removes virtually all backlash from the stock focuser assembly. A lot easier to focus with higher-power eyepieces!

I have used it for astrophography. Items included are the standard items that come with the scope:

10" LX-200 f10 Scope, fork arms, and base
Standard Field Tripod
7x50 Finder Scope
26mm Series 4000 plossl eyepiece
Keypad Controller
18v AC Power Supply
Foam Box & Instruction Manuals

Asking Price: $2,200.00, expect about $150.00 (at least) for shipping and insurance in the Continental US.

I also have the following accessories that I will be selling separately:

Meade 10" Dew Shield: $75.00
Optec TCFs (never used) with accs: $875.00
Meade 6.3 Focal Reducer: $110.00
Losmandy Counterweight System w/ 9lbs of weights: $90.00

Thanks for looking, and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me by email. I check it all day long.

Matt
