This is a one-of-a kind 12" Meade LX 200 telescope in MINT condition. Only six months old. I am replacing this with a 16" SCT immediately and am offering it for the incredible price below to include the following specs. This is NOT your run-of-the-mill discontinued 12" Meade special....

Completely reworked mechanically and optically, with PEC drive accuracy in both RA and DEC down to less than 5 arc seconds per hour. This certified telescope is unique among LX 200's and includes (partial listing):

1) Meade LX 200 12" with custom mechanical and optical modifications to observatory specs. The optics on this telescope will rival ANY telescope within 3-4" aperture, as attested by its use in my planetary imaging program;
2) Losmandy counterweight set and rail system; (new)
3) Losmandy dovetail and radius blocks (new)
4) Apogee right angle 8 x 50 finder scope (new)
5) JMI NGF-S electric focus with NO backlash (new)
6) Rear cell adapters for JMI assembly
6) Meade blue metal dew shield
7) Custom rear cell counterweight assembly to offset right fork balance problem
8) Meade 2" mirror diagonal

NOTE: this telescope has been pier mounted and does NOT include the guidescope or computer interfaces shown in the photo; it also does NOT have the giant field tripod nor wedge as it has been permanently housed in an observatory since completed.

I prefer pickup on this marvelous telescope since it has been completely tuned and calibrated to perfection. If shipped, I would prefer FED EX Economy Express (usually about $160 maximum insured to any place in the CONUS).

It has to go immediately, so I am offering it at the very low price of ONLY $2,300 for all.....firm, no trades. This telescope is certifiably the best in mechanical and optical performance that you have ever seen.

Available immediately. SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY.
