This is a 1992 Meade 8" F6.3 SCT OTA from an LX6 Premier package. It has the Multi-Coated Optics Group I bought it on a non-Astromart (yes, I learned my lesson) site being told it was F10 but it showed up F6.3 and with another problem: very dirty optics. I cleaned them up the best I could but there are some blemishes on the inside of the corrector from the mold. The mirror needs to be cleaned yet. I have looked through the scope and images appear very sharp. M13, M5 and M92 were easily resolved and I could see 6 galaxies in the FOV including M84/86 easily. Mirror shift is minimal. The tube itself has very minor marks from use. Looks near new. I purchased a newer 8" F10 to replace it on the mount and don't have any use for this one. May be a good project for somebody looking for a cheap OTA for CCD imaging or photography. $225 and I pay the shipping or let's make a deal. Thanks for looking. Paypal add 3%. Money order/certified check accepted as well. I can take picture of it with a webcam but they won't show the optics very well but I can try.
