For $1875: Meade LX-200 12" (Classic)that I purchased on consignment from OPT. It was about 6 months old at that time, which was in June of 1997. The following original equipment is included:
* Viewfinder (8x50)
* AC power supply
* All Control Cables
* Giant Field Tripod
* 26mm e.p.
* Hand Control w/ 3.41 firmware (latest for classics, I believe).
* 2" Diagonal w/ 1.25" adapter
Aside from the original equipment, I am including the following items:
* Meade counterweights, with 3 weights, bar
* Mirror lock-down bolt.
* Home-made 12v - 18v power supply
* Kendrick focus cover (2 hole version)
* RS232 cable to connect telescope to PC.
This scope is used, but in excellent working condition. There are basically no functional problems with the scope. The optics are in good shape, but there are a few marks on the corrector about 1-2 inches. The marks were there when I purchased the scope, and they will not affect photographic or visual use. The mount mechanics are smooth, and cosmetically the scope and fork mount are in good condition, with just a few paint chips on the mount and a couple marks on the tube. The Tripod shows a bit more wear than the rest of the scope, but it still functions quite well. One of the tripod legs is a little tight from the tube being overtightened, but the two remaining tripod legs work smoothly.
I am also selling the following items at a discount to whoever buys the scope:
* Super Wedge: $250
* Losmandy DM12: $80
-(12" dovetail plate, with hardware)
* Dew removal system: $150
- Power Controll
- 12" strap for LX-200
- 2" strap for e.p.
- 4" strap for ETX
* Meade 208XT: $200
*** All of above: $530 (save $150)
I'm only looking for a local sale, or to meet up to 200mi from 90713 area code (Los Angeles Area). Please contact me for more information regarding sale conditions. I've also got some more pics including some astrophotos. Thanks for your time!
