Quote:My 10" LX-200 "Classic"Fortunately, I was in the right place at the right time. I purchased it for a song from a couple that used it as a decoration in their sun-room. It sat on its tripod for nearly 10 years with plastic flowers and seashells under it. The previous owners lost the cables and HBX over the years, but that was okay with me. A good once-over revealed that it was in great shape, both mechanically and optically.I immediately replaced the classic electronics with the GMD & Associates Deluxe AutoStar upgrade and haven't looked back.I couldn't be happier!Cheers and Clear Skies,C.
