MUST SELL TELESCOPE - Price is 1/3 of retail value, Scope is excellent condition!
Moving on to the real world, and unfortunately I must part with this beauty.
I am selling a near-perfect condition Meade LX50 EMC (same tube as the LX200) 8" SCT. This comes with the motor drive, remote, wedge, and all standard accessories, plus a whole lot more.
-Meade 8" LX50 Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope
-Full-Aperture Glass Solar Filter
-Eyepieces: 25mm standard Meade eyepiece, 20mm Tele Vue Super Plossl, 40mm Tele Vue Super Plossl (great eyepiece), 12mm NAGLER type 2 (unbelievable field of vision), as well as a 2x magnifier.
-Camera Adapter, made by Celestron (fits any SCT back)
-camera o-ring to connect to any Nikon SLR
-original Meade Box, with foam (perfect for making a custom case)
-Meade heavy-duty large SCT tripod.
An incredible gift for an astronomer, or a great way to jump start your astronomy hobby. 8" is versatile enough for any type of astronomical viewing, and it won't break the bank.
I am offering this for less than I paid for the telescope alone - nearly $1000 of accessories are free (tripod, nagler, eyepices, etc).
Asking $1250 or best offer, +shipping.
I must sell this telescope, I am moving out and and looking for an apartment. I cannot take the scope with me, and money is tight.
If you are interested, please make an offer. I just might take it!!
Thanks for reading.
NOTE: This telescope does not include an Autostar guidance computer. An add-on guidance computer is available from Magellan.
