This is a brand new LXD55 8 inch F/4 Schmidt-Newtonian that I have collimated and checked optically and operationally.
This one has the UHTC, Ultra High Transmission Coatings, which Meade says increases image brightness by 20%. For brightness, this is equivalent to an increase of aperture by 3/4 inches.
Why wait for the backorders to be filled? This one is available for immediate shipping in its original boxes.
I am selling this telescope and others because I have too many of them and want to downsize.
This is a lot of telescope, mechanics and electronics for the money
