Meade 10" LX200 complete kit - $2,750

The telescope was purchased new and is in excellent condition. The optics are excellent. There are a few small marks on paintwork of the OTA which are cosmetic only, but overall the telescope still looks like new.

Telescope has always lived in its protective case inside my home.

Specific details as follows:
  • Meade 10" LX200
    • f/10, 2500mm focal length
    • heavy duty fork mount
    • computerised go-to with 64,350 onboard object library
    • EMC super multicoatings
    • high-precision (1 arcmin) pointing
    • periodic error correction (PEC) training
    • 8x50 viewfinder
    • AC power supply
    • original manuals
  • Accessors
    • Meade field tripod with added wheels, good for moving around
    • High quality hard protective carry case, with die-cut fitted foam insert (similar to a JMI case, but Meade branded)
    • full aperture (10") Thousand Oaks Type 2 glass solar filter
    • 26mm Plossl eyepiece
    • 1.25" diagonal
    • piggyback bracket for astrophotography

Selling all of the above for only $2,750.

Replacement cost for a new 10" LX200 and JMI hard carry case would be in excess of $6,500!!

I am based in Adelaide, but could arrange shipping (at buyer's cost) to elsewhere. Serious buyers are welcome to inspect the telescope to see how well it has been looked after.

Photos coming soon!!!
