For sale is a Meade LX5 10" SCT with the original equatorial wedge and tripod. This is a storage find that had not been used for many years. We do not know if the fork mount's electronics and motors are functional. No power supply, hand control or any other electronics were found with the scope. The original 2" diagonal and a finder scope are included.
The scope was stored with a lens cap and diagonal cover, but the corrector plate could still use a cleaning. The mirrors seem ok. We set it up once to collimate it on a star by manually pointing and locking the clutches, but otherwise have not used it.
This could be a project to revive the mount or could be remounted on a modern mount to get into a 10" class SCT at a bargain price at a time when SCT's are in short supply.
Our asking price is $500 but given the difficulty of pricing this scope, we will consider all offers. Prefer pickup in Dublin, NH but also willing to drive a reasonable distance to deliver or to meet halfway. The proceeds of this sale will go towards our observatory's outreach and educational activities. We are also looking for an ES Ar152 achromat refractor and would be happy to trade.
