Due to lack of time and inability to lug around my setup, I'm interested in downscaling to an ETX-125 EC or maybe even a 90. I'm willing to trade with someone who may want a larger scope if the ETX package is right.
I own a Meade 8" LX50 which includes,
8 X 50 Meade finderscope.
8 X 50 Antares Right Angle (correct image) finderscope.
Stock 6 X 30 Meade finderscope mounted as polar alignment scope.
Fixed height tripod with custom built observing tray.
Meade RA diagonal.
Meade 45 degree correct image diagonal.
Hand controller (not Mag)
JMI - NGF-S focuser with hand controller (NO image shift).
Meade Wedge (with home built latitude adjuster)
AC adapter cord and many EP's with a 2X barlow.
Custom built wooden (finished) case/stand for Scope and mount.
EP (Scopetronix) and OTA (ugly Orion one) dew prevention heaters.
All of the above (seen in photo) can be sold as a package (make an offer) or traded for an interesting ETX package. I prefer selling/trading with someone in or near Wisconsin (Midwest) where we could meet halfway. Alot more photos and info for those who are interested.
