Hi all,

It looks like my buyer can't raise the money, so his loss is your gain. I have already sold the mount seperately, but I still have the 10" SN OTA from my LXD-55.

The OTA has nice optics and I have been very pleased with the views visually and in photographs. Comes with the OTA, hinged rings, extension tube, 1-1/4" focuser tube, 2" focuser tube, and t-thread for mounting a camera. Has the cheesy 6x30 finder, as well. Tube has a small cosmetic dent from previous shipping accident. It has been rolled out and is almost unnoticeable. Front corrector has some dust and a couple small finger smudges near the secondary mirror mount. I can clean it or leave it, buyer's choice. The OTA with the items described above is $500 plus actual shipping and insurance.

I also have the following items that may be useful for the proud new owner, but will be sold seperately. First priority will be given to the OTA buyer. All prices exclude actual shipping and insurance to be paid by purchaser.

SOLD! $30 Telrad and base with mounting tape and batteries (only two months old with original box)

Still Available:
$50 HD Mounting Plate for LXD-55 (also fits CG5/GP/GPDX mounts)
$50 10 Pound weight for LXD-55 (also fits CG5/GP/GPDX mounts)
$20 Top mount camera bracket / carrying handle with 1/4"-20 stud and extra weight to counterbalance camera that fits at the end of the counterweight bar

This baby is priced to go quick and to avoid the issues of this last failed transaction I am going to give first priority to people who can pay with paypal immediately. I can take credit cards, but I am going to pass on the 3% fee if you need to use it. Failing a paypal transaction, I will take a Postal Money Order if it is sent Express Mail. I have to be out of my house on Saturday and can't play games this time. Sorry.


Paul McCarl

P.S. I forgot to show the dent. I can send a photo before shipping.
