I have for sale a Meade 8" LX200 classic with the following:

Front Cap
8x50 finder with caps, and mounting bracket
18V DC Power supply (110V)
Hand Controller
Meade 2" SCT diagonal with 1.25" adapter
Meade 26mm Plossl Eyepiece
Meade SCT Rear cell Skylight filter
Meade piggyback camera mount
Original tripod with spreader.

Meade hardshell case for the OTA/Fork mount

Nothing else is included.

The optics are GOOD and clean.
There is a crack in aluminum on the front ring but it has no functional impact on the telescope.

The electronics work 7 out of 10 time. Sometime it exhibits the DEC runaway. This leads me to thinks its dirty contacts on the cables or possibly the DEC encoder.
UPDATE - I cleaned the contacts on the dec cable and hand controller and it works like a charm!

NO SHIPPING. PICKUP ONLY in Long Beach CA (close to the airport).

Thanks for looking


  • Condition Good
