This is the Deluxe version of the Meade LX10 with EMC coating. Comes with fork mount, tripod, standard wedge, RA and DEC drives, hand controller, 8X50 finder, 1 1/4 visual back and diagonal, and a 10mm Orion plossl eyepiece.
I've also perfomred the following upgrades,
1. Bob's knob installed
2. Scopestuff stainless steel screws installed
3. Scopetronix deluxe latitude adjuster installed.
Scope is in very good condition, some minor scratches on the OTA but nothing major. Optically, it's an excellent performer. It gives beautiful planetary images.
I've used this scope as a grab-n-go scope. Yes, it's light enough that I can lift the whole set up and move it from my house to the backyard. Once roughly polar aligned, it provides excellent tracking for visual use.
Brand new, this scope sells for over $1300. You can have this for less than half of the new price. I prefer local sale but will ship at buyer's expense (CONUS only). Money order/cashier's check accepted. Paypal is OK if you add 3%.
Thanks for looking,
