This is a great setup, a easy to use mount with GO TO, and one of the best refractors made!
I just received my Celestron CGE 1100 on Friday.
LXD55 Equatorial Mount: Designed by Meade engineers and manufactured of machined aluminum for high-performance photo-visual observing, the new Meade LXD55 German-type equatorial mounting moves effortlessly across the skies in either tracking or automatic GO TO modes.
ED102SS Orion/Vixen Apochromatic Refractor OTA Only. Includes finder scope and 1.25" eyepiece holder. The ED102 "SS" refractor features single 2-element optical design with ED glass to dramatically reduce the secondary spectrum and produce outstanding sharp images with high-contrast for both visual and astrophotography applications.
The rack-and-pinion focusing mount accepts an optional adapter for 2" eyepieces. The 102mm optical tube is especially compact and easy to handle.
Both LXD55 mount & FL102SS new you would pay over $2500.00, FL102SS scope has 1 small nick in paint, otherwise super clean and GREAT views, LXD55 in excellent condition, does have marks on top of mounting plate/saddle, INCLUDES 1 extra trypod head $75.00(can be mounted on a Meade LX 200 trypod), also includes a wood trypod $75.00 and Meade metal trypod. Have all of the Meade boxes and manual. $1750.00 + S/H
