This is NOT your run-of-the-mill Meade 102 ED APO!
Complete observing package, featuring a Meade 102 ED Apochromatic refractor with hand selected and collimated cell to my demanding standards at the Meade factory. As me about the details!
The entire setup is mounted on a Celestron CG5 German Equitorial Mount that has been completely re-worked to provide ultra smooth operation! The mount is further enhanced by a solid Oak tripod with solid oak spreader bar. You have to use this mount to appreciate the smoothness, tight fit and rigidity. This is NOT your typical CG5 by ANY stretch of the imagination!
This is an incredible package that includes:
- Meade 102 ED (4 inch) APO refractor OTA
- Orion 80mm short tube achromatic refractor mounted in Orion rings for use as a guide scope (an EXCELLENT sample of a short tube!)
- Celestron CG5 re-worked mount with Oak tripod legs and spreader bar (by Al's Legs) (newest version CG5 with bronze worm gears)
- Polar alignment scope.
- Single axis motor drive with hand controller and battery pack.
- 2 custom carry bags for scope and tripod as well as a hard case for the 80 mm short tube refractor.
- 2" Lumicon Enhanced Diagonal
- 1.25" Lumicon Enhanced Diagonal
- 2 counter weights and custom counter weight carry bag
- Finder scope for 80mm short tube refractor
- 10mm and 25mm Kelner eyepieces
- 2x Short Barlow
This is an awesome package with absolutely first rate optics and accessories. Must see to appreciate. PLEASE call me for complete details and story behind this setup!
This scope and all of it's accessories has seen very little use and looks pristine. I can e-mail additional pictures upon request.
If bought as new, this entire package would cost over $3000.
I will sell this package complete to you for $1799, with FREE SHIPPING to you within the Con. US. I accept cashier's check or money order. Pick it up locally and I will subtract the shipping cost!
Thanks for looking!
