The LX50 is an in-between scope. It's not as nice as the LX200, but
substantially better than the LX10, and has since been replaced by the LX90. Compared to the LX10, it has much stiffer forks, a sturdier and adjustable tripod, a declination drive and the Mag II instead of Mag I digital setting circles. It also has an autoguider port, and you can do *some* photography with it.

Also included:

6x30 finder (stock item)
piggyback mount for a camera,
Bob's Knobs to make collimation a breeze,
homemade balance weight set,
Magellan II digital setting circles and semi-Goto (within 2 degrees),
Scopetronix Deluxe Latitude Adjuster (for quick, accurate polar alignment)
Scopetronix Dec Fix Kit (provides more torque and finer adjustments)
Lumicon 1.25" diagonal (way better than the stock diagonal),
26mm MA eyepiece (stock item),
Meade adjustable field tripod,
manuals for the telescope and Mag II,
water resistant cover from Cases and Covers,
The foam filled box it was originally shipped in (works great for storage).

The Magellan II performs very well, with a decent polar alignment, and the "deluxe latitude adjuster" makes polar alignment a breeze.

All this for $900 + shipping (appx. $150 ConUS).

Thanks for looking.
