This was Dr. Clays personal scope. I purchased this scope from him last year. This scope came with the following upgrades: the focuser has custom bearings and stainless washers, the primary mirror has custom machined aluminum mirror sled sleeve, the RA has a professional stainless worm gear, and the same for the DEC motor assembly. The motherboard has two library cards, a $450 upgrade over the stock items. The drives are absolutely perfect in every way. Dr. Clay spent about three months custom tuning and calibrating this scope both optically and mechanically. It is THE Supercharged scope to compare all others with.
I have added many accessories, Super Wedge $400 (Upgraded with the help of Dr. Clay), #1206 New Meade focuser $100, New AC adapter $50, New 12-18 Volt Dc adapter $50, Meade Metal dew hood $150, Scopesaver $100, BRAND NEW Meade Shipping box & and NEW foam (Priceless)!!
Reason why I am selling it is because with my new job last year and 6 days a week on the road, I just don't have anytime to enjoy this great scope, and want it to go to a good home!
I will sell the Telescope outfit (Was asking $4600.00) $3499.00, + Shipping & Insurance. The total investment is $7050.00.
With LX-200 BOUNS Meade eyepeice deal $650.00 value.
Meade 416XT-E CCD outfit like new, with #616 filter wheel, over $3000 with scope $1000, by it's self $1500.
If there is something you see and want please e-mail me as I will consider selling the other items separate.
Below is a current picture of the outfit.
Any questions please e-mail me, and I have more pics of the setup.
