I have a near mint Meade 16" LX-200 SCT "Classic" No scratches, dings, or marks. Optics are perfect without a single sleek. Complete with Giant field tripod, Custom 12" Diameter Observatory Pier (not the Meade 10"), all the standard accessories which come with the scope plus a NIB software package, Software Bisque "The Sky v5" CCDSoft v5, T-point, Orchestrate, and Remote Astronomy Software! This scope works excellent. See the 90 sec unguide image in the current Meade Catalog and at the Meade on-line Catalog. Note the pinpoint star images.
All electronics just checked out and callibrated by Meade Instruments service dept Nov 15, 2003. I have discovered 2 supernovae with this telescope. Limiting magnitude with a 60 sec exp is 19.51, 10% probability. 19.14 magnitude in 60 sec exp. 90% probability. Reason for selling? Need funds to help purchase a 32 inch telescope.
Complete setup, $11,500.00 (photos available)
