I am selling my LX90, 8" f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope "complete system". Lost my job, need the money but will miss this great hobby. This scope is one of easiest computer controlled (GOTO) units available. Take 5 minutes in setup and spend the remainder of the night taking pictures or just viewing your favorite targets. It is really that simple. The scope has not lost any collmination since it came from the carton, star tests are great. It is in excellent condition*. The system includes the standard field tripod and operating instructions. Also included are the following extras:
1. Homemade Dew Shield, very nice (sewn velcro on soft fabric covered foam, looks professional, adjustable)
