As new in the original box with an Autostar #497 controller. It worked great when I got it about 1 year ago and was spot on with all go-tos and tracking. The plastic lugs that are moulded to the inside face of the RH fork arm that secure the screws attaching the Dec worm-drive and electric motor in place. These moulded plastic lugs are split and cannot be screwed into securely without further splitting of the lugs . A cheap fix is to drill right throught the fork arm and attaching the bits with small nuts and bolts, or get a new RH fork arm replacement from Meade.
I would like to recoup some of my costs so I am asking $1250 AUD for it which works out as a cheap alternative to a new one. These cost around $2300 AUD new without the Autostar and it should not cost a lot to fix it. Email me with any questions.
thanks Nick B
