Meade LX200GPS 8" Telescope, ASI120MC-s, lots of accessories. Condition is Used. Local pickup only.
I purchased this scope used a little over a year ago and have used it approximately 15 times since, I'm looking to sell to upgrade to a pure astrophotography rig. I can provide sample photos taken through the scope with a Nikon D5300(D5300 not included) of Jupiter, Saturn, Moon, M57 ring nebula. I'm more than welcome to deliver within 150mi from Atlanta, Ga, and will also teach you how to set it up. I did the Peterson Engineering ez-clutch, ez-focus and Bucks gears kit. Never could get the GPS function to work but you can manually insert Latitude/Longitude, I'm not sure if it is an issue with the GPS unit or the spotting scope right above it blocking the signal. All in all its been a good scope, coatings and lens seem in good shape, minor amount of dust on the corrector plate but is not visible during viewing or astrophotography and does not effect image quality.
