I have an LX200 10" F10 OTA

The OTA is in good shape - the focuser could use some work, and I have a focuser kit that would go with the scope (you would have to put it on).
The glass and mirror are clean, but the optics just aren't top notch on this scope. It works, but just not at high magnifications.

Low power, the views are fine and very pleasing. It will split the Double Double at higher power, but the stars just aren't pin point.
At 127x (20mm) it is good. You can clearly see objects like the Ring Nebula. The moon looks good even at high mags like 247x. But Jupiter at that magnification is kinda washed out.

So - OTA only - for sale. No finder, just the OTA, 1.25" visual back, and a diagonal.

No mounting rail at this price.

The optics show astigmatism at high power with a 10.5mm eyepiece, and at 150x, brighter stars (150x plus) - aren't quite pinpoint. Usable, but kinda like it hasn't cooled all the way down yet.

I've tried to collimate it out and could not, and also tried rotating the corrector plate a bit, which did help some, but it just wasn't what I thought it should be.

Buyer pays shipping, or pickup in Silver Spring MD area (where you could try it out before purchase).
