FOR SALE: Meade LXD-55 Go-To. Excellent shape, comes with two counterweights, stock aluminum tripod, all controls, battery pack, manual, custom wood legs, tray and spreader. This does NOT include the OTA, but does include the dovetail bar, no rings. This was originally used with one of the standard Meade Newtonian but I use it with my home built 10” newt. The tripod for this scope was a little light weight so I built the custom shorter wooden legs with eyepiece tray and spreader. The tray will hold 2” as well as 1.25” eyepieces. The spreader works with the stock legs and goes a long way toward stiffening the mount. I have been experimenting with photography and would like to get a larger mount that is more stable with this scope.
Weighs about 50lbs shipping from St. Louis MO, 63367. I’d be willing to meet within 150 miles for a cash purchase to save shipping. I have the original box for the mount and I think the tray and spreader will fit in it, but the wood legs will have to go separately.
Asking $475 plus shipping, paypal preferred, but I will accept MO or checks with an appropriate wait to clear.
