This LX-90 is loaded with all those extra items you need for visual and imaging purposes. The scope was purchased May of 2001, and I have just done a tune up so it is tracking beautifully. Until Meade’s most recent software update giving me PPEC, it was tracking better than my 10” LX200 for unguided imaging. It performs flawless GoTos all night long and is an excellent optical scope. See the images below and lots more (identified in the image captions) posted on my web site (e-mail me for URL, I can't post it in the ad) taken with this wonderful instrument. My site has lots more close ups of the scope as well. I have purchased over $800 in extras that go along with this package. Save 40% off my cost ($2,648) for these items, and get a perfectly tuned and performing scope and accessories, all in the original packing. One of the Autostar controllers is brand new (less than 30 days), the other is 90 days new, and both are loaded with the latest firmware.
Entire package listed below: $1,575 – plus shipping and insurance. Credit card accepted through PayPal, or 3% discount for money order/cashiers check. I will also drive a reasonable distance from the DFW area to deliver and help first time setup to save you shipping costs.
