I'm selling my Meade 127ED refractor.
Below are the details of this scope:
- Meade 127ED f/9 refractor OTA, all end caps included
- Meade Universal Thread Adapter(UTA)
- Meade 8x50 finderscope
- Detachable dovetail finder bracket
- Pair of Astro-Physics 5.5" rings to fit OTA(optional)
Objective has never been touched.
99% of the time I used this scope as a guidescope for astroimaging. I did shoot some film through it and was very pleased with the results.
Deep sky observing is a real pleasure. Stars are pin pricks against a dark sky. The classic refractor view.
I did not use it for lunar or planetary observing as I would use my TV102 instead.
If you are looking for a large ED refractor of good quality but do not want to spend the money on the high priced apo's, this is the scope for you.
I replaced the factory supplied plastic thumb screws found on the focuser with stainless steel ones.
Price for the above package - $1799
Price for package w/o 5.5" A-P rings - $1699
Shipping extra, via tracked UPS Ground within the CONUS
