I am selling my like new 8 inch Meade LX200 and complete Astrophotography setup. Increasing back problems have me unable to cope with taking this setup in and out each time I want to use it.
The scope is in perfect condition and working order. It was purchased new in May of 2001 and used a handful of times since.
This scope is absolutely pristine. It looks like it just came off the show room floor. It spends most of its life in my living room. Never left outside and never stored in a non climate controlled environment.

• 8 inch optical tube assembly
• 8X50mm Viewfinder
• Eyepiece holder and diagonal prism
