I recently won a estate auction for my first ever telescope. SN 151816 At 60 seconds to the end of bidding somebody else decided my $71 bid ( Canadian= $55 US) wasn't going to be enough . My MAX bid was $261 Canadian ( $190 US) which was good enough to get it
This was a online auction where you do not get to view it before hand...... I think I did alright since the unit include a newer Meade 2 inch enhanced diagonal .... and a red dot finder the bill for these was included in the box showing the last owner had spent $254 Canadian on them in 2015
Enjoying this site for all the great info about this classic and learning more each day I read another thread
Here is the link to the auction results for some pictures that I used to make my bidding decisions on...... oh the missing parts?
bolts to mount scope to wedge no power cord ( part needed has arrived to make one 2 prong)
