Basically everything from the 8 inch LX-10 SCT package except the OTA.

Used, but in good shape and tracks well.

No idea what it's worth... make an offer.

Will consider trades... looking for a Celestron Nexstar 80mm goto scope but I will entertain all offers.


Fork Mounting: The relatively light weight, but very stable, LX10 fork mounting provides all of the rigidity required for sensitive high-power applications of the telescope, or for photographic or CCD imaging. Ball bearings on the polar axis complement the precise action of the internal worm gear system (below).

DC Electronic Worm-Gear Drive System: The LX10’s Meade-engineered drive system incorporates a 5.75"- diameter worm gear, producing smooth, regular sidereal motion for fully automatic tracking of the telescope with low periodic error—a periodic error that permits such advanced capabilities as long-exposure astrophotography or CCD imaging.

Hand Controller: Essential for micro-guiding the telescope during long exposure astrophotography, the LX10’s standard-equipment pushbutton hand controller yields precise corrections in Right Ascension at 2x speed.

LX10 Field Tripod: The fixed-height LX10 Field Tripod permits a rigid, stable observing platform for the telescope, even at high magnifications. The 32" tripod height is convenient for standing observations; the tripod accepts attachment of the LX10’s equatorial wedge by means of one thread-on knob. For field use the tripod collapses for easy transport.
