For sale is an ETX90 PE with travel box and Autostar.
With some caveats it is in near mint condition and has been only used a handful of times.
The telescope is quite magical when it automatically levels itself and points north. It feels like a magic dance.
There are a few caveats with this telescope. First, the LNT module was attached to the LNT ring with Epoxy after the cheap plastic broke off. Second, when the motors in the horizontal axis move, they go: "loud, silent, loud, silent..." I have not noticed any impact on goto performance due to this. The noise goes down significantly when slewing in slow mode. Maybe I am just paranoid, but I want to point this noise issue out. Note that there is also a small crack in the LNT glass, it has no impact on its usability.
This is a quite unique piece of equipment so I am hesitant to sell it. I know that I will never get another ETX90 PE like this one again in my life. However, it needs to be used, it needs a new owner!
If you pay the "buy now" price I will ship a 12V Meade battery pack for AA batteries. Take my word for it, this is a huge gift.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
NOTE that this is sold "AS IS". No returns are accepted. I am a private seller.
If you need eyepieces or color filters for it, please let me know. I will set up a separate eBay auction for you. No out of eBay sales are allowed
Shipped with UPS Ground. The shipping and packaging will cost me around 48$. I am not being mean to you by charging you 39$. If you like I can compensate you for the final shipping cost if it miraculously turns out to be less than 39$.
Thank you for looking.
