    Default LX200 Classic 10" f6.3 Excellent condition



    For sale is a gently used Meade LX-200 EMC 10" f/6.3 telescope, with computer controlled GOTO system.

    It is the f6.3 version, not the f10, so it is great for astrophotography, and has taken many great images. Its focal length is 1600mm, and Meade calls it a wide-field telescope.

    Everything is in proper working order, it was used last Saturday night for imaging. I am the second owner of this instrument, the first passed away a couple of years ago, and I acquired it through his estate. I cant think of one thing that is wrong with this scope except the LED on top of the handbox is broken (an easy repair). The glossy blue finish is just about perfect, the correcter although a little dirty, has no defects that I have noticed.

    I use a DSI 2 to guide for longer exposures, and the mount handles the job just fine. (not included)

    Here's What's Included:
    Lx200 10" f/6.3 EMC Schmidt-Cassegrain Wide Field Telescope
    Meade LX Quartz 'Smart Drive' System (ver 3.34 LATEST FIRMWARE)
    Meade Hand Controller
    Meade SuperWedge
    Heavy Field Tripod
    Large 8x50 Finderscope w DIY Guider adapter (works great)
    Meade Diagonal Prism (1 1/4")
    Meade Super Plossl 26mm Eyepiece (1 1/4")
    Meade Super Plossl 12.4mm Eyepiece (1 1/4")
    Hand Control Connecting Cable
    Declination Connecting Cable
    AC Power Adaptor w/long cable
    I added the Peterson Engineering EZ focus kit, which smooths out the factory focuser, and a fine OPT Crayford focuser, which really helps fine focus, and carries a camera very well.

    Why am I selling? My back is getting tender, and this scope is a little heavy.

    Local pickup is preferred, Springfield, MO is just about dead-center of the US, an 8 hour drive to Dallas or Chicago, so Im not that far from you! Ill drive some to assist with delivery.

    I can shoot you a video verifying the scopes operation.

    $2500 for all. Due to the size and weight of this telescope & tripod, add $200 shipping to CONUS. If shipping is less I will refund the difference. No extra fee for PayPal.

    Please email me if you have any questions I can answer.

    I dont think so. One similar to mine sold for $1900.00 last week, and it wasnt on a wedge. $2200 is it, and well worth it. Im imaging M33 right now, and it is amazing!

    Let me consult my family first... I think they'll be more comfortable with $2,000. If they are ok then I may ask you to do a demo via webcam, if it is ok with you...

    You will need to come up a bit. This isn't distressed merchandise at all. Let me know what you need. Where are you?

    Yes, I have it. I have added a Moonlite crayford-style focuser, with DC motors for electronic focusing, which will bring the price up a bit. I have also added second finderscope, so It has a dedicated guide-scope, and finderscope.

    The price is now closer to $3000.00. Let me know if you are interested.
