I'm selling my LXD55 telescope with 8" reflector. LXD55 Tripod, motorized mount with AutoStar controller, and SN-8EC reflector telescope. I bought this second hand about 18 months ago. It has been well cared for, and everything seems to operate correctly. I used it a few times, and lost interest. So I'm selling it to free up room in my house.
Everything seems to function well, and the glass seems to be in excellent condition. The accessory tray is missing from the tripod. This doesn't seem to effect performance or stability. Also, the meade label with latitude isn't attached. And finally, one handle on a latitude adjustment is broken. The latitude adjustment can still be easily adjust with any sort tool. I use an allen wrench. None of these seems to be an issue, but I wanted to disclose it.
Asking $550. Buyer Pays Shipping. Prefer local pickup around Kansas City.
