Meade 10" 2120 LX-6 telescope, f6.3 for $1250. Very nice for observation and photographic work. 12 years old and has worked quite well over that time. It has the usual tripod, 9x60 spotting scope, and 90 degree adapter; a Telrad; 26 mm super plossl, 40 mm Tele Vue plossl, 18 and 12 mm ortho eyepieces; 2x Meade barlow; off-axis guider+Meade 12mm dbl-x hair eyepiece; Nikon T ring; T-adapter for direct shots; eyepiece holder/tele-extender through-the-eyepiece shots; green, blue, orange, and grey filters; homemade piggyback; homemade counterbalance system; homemade eyepiece holder with cover which bolts to the tripod; a wedge made quite rigid with a 5/16" aluminum plate; various oddities (12V hair dryer, the regular car adapter, a direct car battery adapter for the odd times you are sharing your car with someone else, a battery pack, AC adapter, a brush, odds-and-ends box of bolts, etc, hex wrenches, etc., etc.).

The optics were checked by Meade and are in good order. I keep the scope in a homemade case.

The 26 mm plossl has a scratch to one side which has had no noticed effect on viewing (no streaks/rays/etc.). The dec motor wire got chopped into pieces once, but I found another cable which works perfectly (i.e. with the right plugs at both ends). The controller's plastic cover over its plug is not real tight any more so one must be careful when removing the plug from the base of the drive or it'll slide off backwards. I expect such could be easily replaced but have never looked into it.

The base accepts computer and encoder input (Meade 9008 system or equivalent software). I have never used this feature so can't speak to its efficacy.

I also have a superwedge for scopes of this type. $150.

Buyer will pay shipping/insurance with available carrier of choice.
