I am reluctantly offering for sale my Meade 16" LX200 custom classic. Due to back problems, I can no longer easily set it up (Even with the requisite helper - it's a two-man job). I purchased this from Meade enthusiast and spokesperson Bobby Lindsey. According to him, it was one of the first few they produced, and the opticians worked extra long and hard on the optics to make it perform much better than "normal" so it could be used to promote the scope (Jack Newton supposedly got one of the others in this batch). I have no way to prove this, but star-tests are excellent, showing almost no SA and very smooth optical surfaces.
It comes with the standard super-giant tripod, a CUSTOM wedge that I had a foundry make, plus a trailer, as seen in the photos. It comes with an 80mm finder (NOT the 50mm mounted on the scope), and also a custom R&P screw-on focuser (It does have some image-shift, the only problem I can find with it. No eyepieces or diagonal.

You must pick it up, or hire / send someone to get it, as I cannot ship it. No exceptions!

$8000. Paypal only, please.
