This is the Deluxe model with the optional Enhanced Super Multi-Coatings (EMC). This scope is near perfect optically and cosmetically. I purchased it a few years ago from a university that said they hardly used it then (I actually believed that when I saw the condition). I was going to build an observatory but never got around to it. I’ve used it approx. half a dozen times myself. I usually use my C5+. A Meade 8X50mm Finder scope is mounted on it. A 4-way Hand Controller operates with a single 9 volt battery or an optional plug in pack. A Meade 25mm eyepiece and 1.25” Mirror Diagonal will also tag along.
This scope has the exact same optical assembly as the 8"LX200's and LX90's. It will give you the same 'wow' feeling when you look through the eyepiece without giving you the 'buyer's remorse' for spending $1500 - $2000 on a LX90 or LX200. This is a perfect setup for someone wanting to step up to a serious rig. It also comes with the upgraded mount with adjustable legs and Meade Wedge.
$850 and the buyer pays the shipping - estimate approx. $150. Should ship in two packages. I have the scope in a padded foot locker for enhanced protection. CONUS only. A certified cashier's check or Paypal are preferred.
Call me (Alan) at this number if you are interested.
