Meade ETX-LS 8" Telescope
This is an essentially new telescope. It was opened, set up, and turned on once, I was blown away by the this telescope however I need a smaller more portable scope. This is a monster photon bucket and you will be able to see amazing things as I have. Pictures were taken of the telescope with the intent to sell it, and re-boxed. If you go to the Meade website, you will easily find all the info about this amazing instrument, in better detail than I can provide here. It includes accessories as well, including a Barlow lens (Meade07273LF #126 2x Tele negative lens), eyepiece holder (Meade 07182LF), 4 color filters (Meade 07530 Series 4000, Color Filter Set #1, [#12, 23A, 58, and80A]), a Super Plossi eyepiece (Meade Series 4000 26mm (07175-02LF)), and adiagonal prism (Meade 07202LF). It also comes with a very sturdy steel tripodand a video monitor. I paid over$2,000 for it, plus more for the accessories.
