Nice Meade Mak LX50 on fork with wedge, optics in perfect condition, mount shows some dust/ corrosion on screws etc. typical of observatory-mounted Meades.
Stock OTA. This one has the 7# counterweight in it.... I've received queries regarding that. Originally purchased from Roger Tuthill, inspected, collimated and shipped in 2000. Have original Tuttle receipt. Originally mounted on a pier, never moved or handled until now, mounted on a pier in our SKYSHED. I am the second owner, and we just have too many scopes at our observatory.

Motor works in Dec/RA. Tracking is excellent at 550X. Hand controller, power adapter, Dec motor cable. Fan works, missing that cable.

Williams single-speed Crayford works well in conjunction with the stock focuser.
2"/1.25" adapter and Meade diagonal.

Will crate up/protect as well as possible, but advise recollimation check when received. Local pickup in Central Maine also a possibility.

If you prefer, I will dismount the OTA and pay the shipping myself, OTHERWISE.....
Buyer pays shipping, and it will be about 65# Paypal preferred, other arrangements on request.


  • Condition very good
