I have one last Meade series 4000 plossl EP at 9.7mm for sale. Pre chinese era (actually 4 years old) but of current design and still in mint condition. I paid $90 for it in 1999 and there is absolutely nothing wrong with its' appearance OR performance. It's actually a very good EP and at $35 shipped, I think this is a bargain. Includes original Meade bottle and possibly box as well. Many thanks!
