Quote:Thanks for the answers, according to the seller the telescope is in good condition, was purchased in 2001 and has been used less than 40 nights, has telrad instead of original finderscope, he sells the telescope with the diagonal prism, Meade Series 4000 26mm eyepiece, AC (house) and DC 12 volt (car) power cords, original instruction manual, heavy duty tripod, all packaged in the original boxes, shipping fee will be $75 and No scratches orstains on any of the interior parts such as the mirror or the corrector plate and Motors are working fine.
Quote:No offense taken Skywatchr, as I don't really disagree with you. Realistically, I expect to sell the focal reducer and wedge seperately then sell the basic LX200 setup with softcase for less than $800. I would be interested in your opinion as to the market value of my scope.
Quote:I love the scope but promised the wife if she bought me the LX200 10" GPS I would sell the 8". She got me the 10" with a pier, super wedge,a Celestron 102 F5 as a guide scope, 2 DSI pros, a DSI 2 pro, several eyepieces, etc. etc.
Quote:I'll just chime in here and say that Skywatchr is right on the money. But it wouldn't hurt either of us for you to mention that the Classic you're selling can be upgraded to use the same controls that a new LX90 uses, and be a lot better scope in the end ;-)

Quote:They offered me a Meade 8" lx90 UHTC with accessories like nebula filter, erecting prism, 8-24mm zoom eyepiece, 2x barlow, vibration isolation pads, ac adapter, Meade #2 filter set for $850 plus $50 for shipping, what do you think? It is a godo price? Thanks
