I bought this telescope from the following ad about a year and a half ago. It was sent to me in excellent condition, and I’ve added one new lense to it since. I will ship it in the same original boxes I received it in, and in the same excellent condition. This is truly an amazing scope and I highly recommend it.
Meade LX10 8" f10 SCT. Scope, wedge and tripod are in excellent condition with no dents or chips and everything included is in good working condition. The corrector plate has never been removed and nothing inside of the OTA have ever been touched or cleaned. Includes many extras as follows:
- Everything is included with the LX10 including fork mounted OTA with dust covers, RA drive with hand controller, 6X30 finderscope, 1.25" visual back and prism diagonal, 26mm Meade Series 4000 Superplossl, Meade adjustable wedge and manuals. Extras included are an Orion red dot finder, Bob's Knobs for easy collimation, deluxe latitude adjuster and deluxe clamping knobs on the wedge, dec motor, 12v external power cord with cigarette lighter plug.
- Meade field adjustable tripod. This is the same tripod used with the LX200 and is MUCH more rigid than the standard nonadjustable tripod that is now included with the LX10. The scope was primarily used on a second wedge mounted on a permanent pier. This tripod was mainly used to store the scope indoors in my family room and is in excellent condition with no dents or rust. Includes azimuth fine adjuster, bubble level, and magnetic compass.
- Meade Magellan I DSC already installed with 12,218 object database for easy location of objects.
- This is a current product line model that is supported by Meade.
Selling for $900.00 including insured shipping in the lower 48.
