For sale is my exceptionally well cared for Meade LX200-ACF 8" SCT which is the newest LX200 model.
To say that this instrument is like new is an understatement. It is BETTER than new. It has been supercharged by the esteemed Dr. P. Clay Sherrod to operate with astounding precision.
For more information on the supercharge process, just google "Dr. Clay Supercharge".
In Dr. Clay's own words while corresponding with him during the supercharge process... "Both of your drives are excellent and the machining and quality of the worm
is as good as Meade will ever produce." and "The Optics on this are fantastic". I think that says it all as to the quality of the telescope.
Additionally, the scope has all stainless steel screws and has had the plastic gears replaced with Peterson Engineering Buck's Precision Gears which were further optimized by Dr. Clay during the supercharge.

The only reason I am selling this scope is to finance the purchase of an APO Refractor.
I am located in Southern New Jersey and prefer local pickup, however, I will ship to the lower 48 states via UPS ground.
This telescope retails for $2500 + $625 (current pricing) for the supercharge service.
I am asking only $1800.00 + shipping.
Scope will be shipped or provided for pick-up in it's original box.
If payment is made via Paypal please add 2.9% for the fee.
This would make an incredible holiday gift for yourself or another astronomer in your life. Please feel free to ask any questions.
