I have a nice Meade ETX90 for sale. The optics are superb! The scope is in excellent condition. I de-forked it off its mount because the mount was a piece of crap. The internal RA gears are loose and rattling around inside. I bought this scope second hand. I will include a 25mm Wide Angle eyepiece as well.

The OTA is covered in a wrap from Telewrap, who made these pictoral wraps with astronomical images on both sides, I happen to choose the galaxy side. It is held in place with double sided tape. I also added a William Optics Blue dovetail bar, a custom made 3D printed front cover and a custom made 3D printed Solar Filter too. There is an adapter ring on the back side so that you can use any 1.25" accessory, by means of a 1.25" Visual Back. I also stuck a Rigel Quik Finder plate to the OTA (Rigel Quik Finder not included). I have used this scope to take pictures of Jupiter. The optics really perform well.

The Case is an Apache case from Harbor Freight Tools. I specifically plucked out the foam cubes to fit the scope, filter and eyepiece inside. There is room for another eyepiece or two.

I originally paid $150 for the scope with the mount, added the case for $40, the dovetail for $40, Visual Back adapter for $20 and the Solar Filter for another $40. Total comes to $290. But I am not looking for that much. I am looking for $180 which includes shipping, PayPal is 3.5% extra. The case alone, while protecting the scope from damage and water/moisture, will cost a bit to ship, probably $30 or more.

If you live locally, within New England, I could perhaps meet you some place equidistant between the two of us and not have to pay for shipping, which would make the cost $150.

Thanks for looking!
