Rarely used, almost mint condition Meade 2045D 4" (102mm) f/10 f=1000mm SCT.
Comes with Meade custom molded locking case. Meade 25mm eyepiece (1.25"), Meade mirror diagonal, adjustable table top legs for good polar alignment when not using the tripod (excellent portability,) finder scope, end caps, and manual. (See below for tripod and wedge also included.) Will also throw in filter for eyepiece. The filter is great for viewing planets that can be quite bright without it. This is one quiet scope when tracking (Northern or Southern Hemisphere!)
Multi-coated optics are pristine. When set on the tripod I can even see the rings on Saturn and the red spot on Jupiter- I love this instrument and I hate to part with it, but money for school is needed more than my Meade.
Everything is in Excellent/Perfect condition, very sharp image scope in collimation. The scope can be taken by itself and set up using the table top legs or set up on the Meade heavy tripod and wedge.
Also included in this auction is a Meade heavy tripod and wedge, The tripod and wedge provide amazing stability for excellent viewing and very sharp images. This setup would also work well for phototography. I have hardly used this setup, (hence the dust on the tripod,) so everything is in great condition-
