This scope was donated by Meade to Astronomy Magazine as a 1st prize for one of its contests. Won by a non-astro person who sold it to me.
Literally used only 3 times. Kept in first floor, temperature-controlled family room.
Selling because it didn't meet my needs. I use a Starmaster dobsonian instead. I’m not out to make a profit, so I’m selling it for the same price I paid.
This scope comes with UHTC--the Ultra-High Transmission Coatings that improves brightness by about 20%!
Includes all standard equipment (#497 Autostar, tripod, diagonal, 8x50 finder, 26mm Super Plossl eyepiece, etc.) plus manual and original boxes.
Has Autostar bracket holder. Original quality control inspection sticker still on it. Has blank registration card, so you can fill that out and send it in.
Also including the Meade piggy-back camera adapter and the Meade PC cable connection kit, #505.
Pick up only, upstate NY.
Save several hundred over current prices, no sales tax, and receive it immediately. (No shipping hassles, delays, or problems.)
