I purchased the telescope in 1982. It is one of the first schmidt-cassegrains made and has outstanding optics. It is currently housed in my Sirius Observatory. Last year I purchased an Argo Navis CPU with digital setting circles and mounted the encoders on the telescope. The scope comes with a Telescope World portable pier and the heavy duty wedge. I also have an Accutrack Drive Corrector which I had Norm Tackman of Ventura, CA modify to accept an SBIG ST2000XM. Norm modifies drive correctors for SBIG digital cameras. The scope has been used at many star parties. It does show some wear along the edges of the fork arms and rear area of the mirror cell. The reason I am selling it is because I have serious osteoarthritis in my knees and I have difficulty lifting heavy objects and standing for long periods of time. So I'm looking to buy a larger telescope for my observatory that is computer controlled. The Argo Navis unit requires you to move the telescope manually with a read out on the red LED. You enter your coordinates, location, date, etc. and align on two stars. The CPU has over 145,000 objects.

Comes with standard accessories
Meade eyepieces
carrying cases
operating manual

You will need to pick it up. I will show you how to assemble and disassemble the scope. I will not ship it because I would need to remove the digital encoders.

Asking $3,000.00. If I don't sell it then I will purchase a Celestron CGE mount and keep it. The optics are outstanding.
