I have a stock Meade LX50. I've owned over a year, and the OTA has been out of it's box 3 times. I would like to sell or trade down to a cheaper dob, preferrably a 10" Orion (DSE is ok), Discovery or similar (8" also considered). My setup is as follows.
Meade 10" LX50 SCT OTA
Meade tripod and stock controller
Standard 1.25" diagonal
Meade 2" diagonal I purchased separately
6x50 finder scope
This combination is worth about $1300. For a trade down, I need cash and a scope.
Two of the plastic knobs on the tripod legs need to be replaced, otherwise excellent condition based on my limited use and knowledge.
I'd like someone with 500 miles of Raleigh, NC so we can meet and make the trade or complete the sale.
