Meade LX3 8-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope in excellent condition. Must sell to make room for new upgraded telescope. Originally purchased in 1988, it was used briefly for a couple of years until the neighbor installed a dusk-to-dawn light and ruined viewing. It has been in storage since that time. With Mars approaching opposition, I got the scope out to show the grandkids. Decided it would be more fun for them if I upgraded to a scope with computer drive. Scope is in great working condition with good optics which compare favorably with new scope. This is a great time to buy a scope for viewing Mars. Original accessories included with scope are:
8 x 50 Finder scope with LED illuminator
1.25 inch Star diagonal
Polar alignment guide (not shown in photo)
25mm Plossl eyepiece, 1.25 inch
AC to 12 V adaptor
12 V Car adaptor (not shown in photos)
Original shipping and storage case
Original user manual is not included, however these are readily found on line.
Extra eyepieces included are:
Meade 1.25 inch 6.4 mm Plossl.
Televue 1.25 inch 10.5 mm Plossl.
