Excellent condition, approx 2 years old.
OTA, adjustable field tripod and wedge.
Also includes:
Meade 25mm MA eyepiece
Meade 1.25" visual back and star diagonal
Finder scope
Hand controller
Dlx latitude adjuster
Custom Baader astrosolar film full aperture filter
Original box w/foam and owners manual

Scopetronix Dec Fix Kit
the Scopetronix large alumiminum Dec gear
Computer chip was replaced with 5.1 version, which works best with this Dec motor and Dec fix kit. Dec motion is smooth at slow speeds.

Best of several RA drive units installed (I tried several others).
The RA worm gear and worm were run with lapping compound to smooth out the jumpy periodic error (that many LX-50's have)

I have lots more pictures posted on my personal webspace - please email me for that URL. Apparently Astromart will not allow links to additional pictures of items on users pages ???

$900. Will split the shipping or meet within a few hundred miles of central Pennsylvania. If picked up at my home, will sell for $870.

Thanks for looking!
