10" Meade RCX
I have a collectors Meade 10" RCX for sale. I am not the first owner of the scope but all works really well and I would like to sell it as I am not using it enough to warrant owning this. These scopes have incredibly flat fields and pin sharp (just like a refractor) stars.
Some of the features I found really useful are autocollimation, internal dew heater, carbon fibre tube and of course the meade software. Fans in the OTA as also really good. There is a minor scratch on the tube and a screw missing from the finder scope assembly. I have not imaged with it but have used it primarily on visual work. A former member here used one of these for imaging and produced great results with it. I am sure this scope will be the same.
The tripod is huge and makes a standard tripod look small and very light weight too. The whole scope setup is very stable but is heavier than a standard LX200R 10" scope.
Since this is a bit of a novelty item I am looking at recovering a fair price. I will send this via Pack Send to any other State. The cost of that is about $500 and I have used them before with great success. The scope has a JMI hard case for maximum protection.
Sale price including freight $3900 ONO.
I will put up photos if requested.
Edit: amended to consider the current LX200 prices
