I'm selling a Meade model 300 80mm f/15 guidescope with two mounting rings, .965 diagonal, and an unmarked .965 eyepiece for $70 plus UPS shipping, PayPal only please. This is the long white scope in the photo.
The scope is in fairly good shape, but there are some places where the white paint has been scratched off the tube, and there is a small dent in the dewshield. The diagonal's barrel has scratches on it. The scope glass looks good, but there is some dust on the inside surface. There's a metal cap included which fits over the end of the adjustable lens cell, inside the screw-on dewshield. There are different nylon screws for the tube rings than what are shown in the picture (one broke, so I put on six new ones). No finder is included.
This scope came with a DS-16 that I bought, but I doubt that I'll ever use the guidescope for its intended purpose. Someone could put it on its own mount and have a nice planetary scope, and you could use a .965/1.25 diagonal to use bigger eyepieces with it.
Payment to be made by PayPal only, and buyer will pay for UPS shipping from zip code 44606. The shipping package is 57x7x6 and weighs 11 pounds, in case you want to check the UPS website for an estimate of the cost to get it to you.
Thanks for looking!
