FOR SALE: Meade LXD-55 Go-To. Excellent shape, comes with two 10# counterweights, stock aluminum tripod, dovetail plate, all controls, battery pack, manual, custom wood legs (non adjustable), 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 Newtonians but I use it with my home built 10” newt. I built the custom shorter wooden legs to get the eyepiece height down to a respectable height. 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 have a larger mount on the way, so this has to go!
Weighs about 50lbs shipping from St. Louis MO, 63367. I’d be willing to meet within 100 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 $450 plus shipping, paypal preferred add 3%, but I will accept MO or checks with an appropriate wait to clear.
