Not sure this is the right forum for this. Hoping to get some advice.
I have an opportunity to purchase a pre-owned 10" LX200 GPS LMT for $1,100.00. The purchase includes the scope, finder, tripod and carrying case. I will have a chance to turn it on and give it a thorough testing, but at the moment all I have seen are photographs of it. It has been stored unused in a basement for several years and is quite dusty, though I understand the corrector cover has been in place the entire time and the visual back has been capped. I don't know how old the telescope is, but will find out when I give it a test run. I am wondering if anyone can tell me if $1,100.00 is a decent price assuming the electronics and optics check out.
Follow up question: I currently have a 10" LX200 Classic. Many of you here on CN have been kind enough to help me solve some problems with it in the past. I have replaced all the relevant capacitors in the scope and handset and have installed the Peterson EZ Focus Kit. The telescope works great. Goto is spot on. Optics are excellent and cosmetically it looks nearly new. I have grown quite fond of my Classic. However, I can't justify having two 10" LX200's floating around my house so if I purchase the GPS I will sell my Classic. Can anyone suggest a fair price? It would include the scope, finder, tripod and Super Wedge.
Thank you in advance. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
