    Default Help Identify meade telescope



    Hello.

    First time poster and I do not know a thing about telescopes, My dad bought a Meade telescope at an auction and decided that he has no use for it. We are trying to figure out what model number it is, all i know is that the brand is Meade which is clearly labeled on the side of it. Once again forgive me for which i have no idea or clue about telescopes. Is there a way to tell what model number this is?

    Telescope is a bit dusty due to sitting in storage for some time, but works great.

    Also i do not know if this helps but there is a sticker on it that says J-30, i don't know if that means anything?

    Hi Rt, and welcome to AFN!

    We do have a min. post policy that helps us control spam, and it requires at least 5 posts before you can post images, etc.

    Here is a copy of the site rules:

    Astronomy Forum Rules and Terms of Service - Part One, The Legal Stuff

    If you wish, you can load the images into the site here:

    Login - Astronomy Photos Pictures

    And then I will approve the images for you. Sorry for the delay, but it's a good policy and saves us moderators a huge amount of time deleting unwanted posts for all kinds of junk that spammers would post.

    Mike

    ... well ... that's a toughy so far ... once you upload a picture we'll see what we can see ... Rich should wander by in a little while and he is the "official Meade Junkie" ...

    ... btw ... your pics will have to be approved, but don't worry ... after a little while that too shall pass ...
