Quote: Hi. I just picked this up at a yard sale for 200.00. It looked good and for 200.00 what the heck! I know it's an older model but I can't seem to find any info. on it. Can anybody give me some info. on it if you have? Like when was it made? Did I over pay? What would be the f ratio? Can I use it for astrophotography? Can I locate a manual? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

When I called meade about a secondary only for a LX3 2120 they offered to upgrade it to f/8 ACF for only $850. Funny, they didn't inquire as to whether I was the original owner. Anyway, a CN member sold me a LX200 corrector with the secondary for $95. After removing the secondary, I eBayed the corrector netting $90 and gave the LX3's secondary, which needed to be totally stripped and recoated for about (quote $75} and the extra secondary cell to a CN member in need. The LX3's now one of the few 2120s in Brazil.
