Price Drop-Meade De-forked 12"LX200

I de-forked this wonderful scope a while ago and mounted it on an EQ8 mount in my observatory in SE Queensland (both of which are also for sale).

Since then the scope has performed wonderfully well and I have taken some cracking images of galaxies and ring nebulae. Unfortunately my health has deteriorated to the point where I can no longer stay up all night looking at stars. Mores the pity!

My loss however, is your gain. The scope is in excellent condition with no mould on the objective. I have replaced (and kept--its very good) the original Meade electric focuser with a very expensive temperature controlled one from Starlight Instruments in the USA which you can operate from your laptop.

The scope comes with both focusers, the original Meade straight through star alignment scope, a fitted weight bar and weights, full length Losmandy style dovetail bars top and bottom, and a 12"dew zapper belt. Please note that the fork mount and field tripod are not included.

[B]I am asking $3,500 for the lot. Buyer pays freight. PM's only please.
