Meade LX850 Mount with all original accessories. Very nice mount just too big for me. I need to downsize to something easier to set up every day. I can't have it outside or on wheels

I have some extras that go with the mount too. I have all the original boxes. Thanks for looking.

Meade warranties are not transferable but you can get the extended warranty from a few sources and it is much cheaper than through Meade. I priced it to sell fast and I will also consider reasonable offers.

Also, I have up for sale the 14" F/8 OTA that it came with. Same deal, too heavy for me. Please see my other ad for the OTA. I can also negotiate for them both together if you are interested.

Attached photos. 33.333 minute single exposures in L, O3, N2, s2 and 10 minutes of RGB. Just one image each, no flats bias or darks. This was just a tracking test.

PE graph is RAW uncorrected and unguided. With correction using Starlock PEC training it gets down under 3 arc/seconds and Starlock guides down to seeing. In a recent test Starlock was guiding, in spotty seeing, under an arc second!!

Included accessories

A) Everything the mount would normally ship with which includes 2x 26lb counter weights, counter weight bar, Starlock, Meade serial cable and serial to USB adapter cable, vibration suppression pads, AC adapter, compass/level, tools for adjusting and tightening down stuff. I may have forgotten something?


1. Extra 26lb counter weight
2. Extra 10lb counter weight
3. Extra Starlock counter weight (handy if you mount a refractor on the side saddle)
4. Extra Hand controller
5. Extra base plate so you can keep one on your permanent pier.
6. DC adapter (12v cigarette plug type) power cord.

I am also willing to drive a few hours to meet the buyer who brings cash. Just make sure you have room for very big boxes.

No warranty expressed or implied. No returns.
