I have an Orion XX12i truss scope

The scope is on a base on rollers (note - not the tracking platform as pictured )

It is very good optically and has a very smooth Moonlight 2-speed focuser

The encoders are not working quite right - I bought a replacement set (new old stock) and installed them and still had no luck with them. It appears that the Altitude / AZ (up / down) encoder is not responding. I have swapped stuff out, back and forth, and still no luck. The base encoder (Azimuth / AZ) does test well.
Selling the scope as is with the original encoders and no controller.

Note - it is on a rolling base now - not the tracking platform pictured.

The original owner had flocked the inside of the tube at the bottom and top - could be slightly re-glued or new tape, but it seems OK. Optically - the views are very good, and the 2-speed Moonlight focuser is nice to have. Comes with a Telrad finder.

The 4.5" guide scope is not included, but if you wanted it I'll include it for $50
If the buyer has to have it - I would sell the tracking platform (single axis- works nicely here in DC) for $400 (with the scope only)
If you want - I will include the replacement encoders and Intelliscope controller at $100 - new owner responsible for getting it working - and the Alt encoder DOES NOT WORK - you would need to find one.

Buyer pays shipping and packaging -
But - I really prefer meeting up in Silver Spring MD or surrounding area for gas money.
PayPal, Money order, or cash
