I have an extra Meade 497 Autostar with the spiral connector cable. It has been tested once to verify it works properly, and has no problems. MINT condition, still has plastic cover over the screen, and is brand new. I don't have the original box. Great to have an extra when moving around at star parties, or just in case yours' decides to quit. These are $150 new!
I'm asking $75 plus actual shipping costs, which should only be a few dollars depending on how you want to ship it. Paypal add 3%, money order/cashier's check, personal check accepted as long as you don't mind waiting for it to clear before shipment.
Please email me with any questions.
