Meade LX200GPS Fork Mount for a 12" OTA

FOR SALE
MEADE LX200GPS fork mount for a 12" Meade OTA.
$1650 + Shipping


OBVIOUSLY NONE OF THE TELESCOPES OR BINOCULARS ARE INCLUDED IN THE SALE - JUST TO DEMONSTRATE THE VERSATILITY OF THE MOUNT

The best part about fork mounts is that the viewing angle is always comfortable, the LX200 is also Go-To and it tracks perfectly.
Easy setup unlike equatorial mounts, just point it north and do a two star alignment and you are ready to go.
Everything works on the Meade Mount as it did originally, that is it the level North / South sensor still operates, some conversions have to disable this. The mount aligns on two stars and accurately points to the object and tracks it.

Meade mounts have a battery compartment built into the fork arms and can be powered by 8 "C" size batteries, or you can power it by the usual portable battery pack or mains supply transformer (not supplied).
If you get tired of the binoculars you can mount any SCT type of telescope or Refractor and again have a comfortable viewing position.

What's included.

Meade LX200GPS Fork Mount previously held a 12 inch telescope.
Meade Giant Field Tripod.
Large mounting block.
Small mounting block.

Please PM if interested to discuss pickup preferred but can be shipped at your cost.
