I purchased the LXD 55 system just for the EQ mount planning on selling the OTA. Unfortunately the scope that Meade sent me, was badly damaged (the mount was fine!). So, after some long phone conversations with Meade’s very good customer service… I sent them the broken scope, and they sent me a fresh one, right off the assembly line!!! I have NEVER used this scope, and only opened it to make sure they had not screwed up again! To say that this scope is in mint condition is an understatement. It was obviously hand selected by Meade in order to fix their first mistake! Although, like I said, I have never looked through this scope, I have heard that it has excellent optics! There are also some amazing astro-photos that were shot through this scope, which I have seen online, and in Sky and Telescope! I have included all of the photo/visual accessories that come with the scope (including tube rings and 6X30 finder scope) EXCEPT 26mm eyepiece.
Schmidt-Newtonian 6 in. aperture, and a focal ratio of f/5
This scope does NOT have UHTC coatings.
No mount included.
My price… $200 (does not include shipping)
Thanks for looking, and clear skies!
