Not Returnable Please note that due to this product's size and shipping costs, this product is not returnable.

This is a used Meade 10" LX200 with GPS from an estate.  It is an older model, approximately 12-15 or so years old, but is in very good condition.  

This includes the motorized electronic focuser, a 1.25" diagonal, 8x50 finderscope, and a 26mm Plossl eyepiece.  We have confirmed that the mount is operational. 

It also includes a custom-built dolly.  So, if you keep this in the garage or a shed, you can just wheel it out whenever you want to use it.  

We are including the wedge that came with this scope, but we do not have the bolts for it.  So, this would be a little project to get the correct-sized screws/bolts for this.  

If you've been wanting to move up in aperture, but at a discount, this is the scope for you've been waiting for.  This is a steal at half-off and won't last!  

This item cannot be shipped.  It is available for in-store pickup only.  


NOTE: The LX200 is a heavy instrument best suited to a permanent or portable observatory. We strongly recommend two able-bodied people to assemble these instruments.

This 10" LX200 GPS has 10” diameter f/10 optics (focal length 2540mm).  Features High Precision Pointing capability.  

The drive base of the telescope has multiple input and output ports including an RS-232 PC interface and jacks for a (user supplied) CCD Autoguider and illuminated reticle.

All LX200 GPS models feature the DC-servo driven super heavy duty double fork mount, the strongest and most rigid mount in its class. Fast slew speeds are from 1 to 8 degrees per second, and can be user selected at .1 degree per second increments, while fine slewing and photographic guiding speeds can be adjusted from .01x to 1x sidereal in one one-hundredth increments. The mount and all electronics are internally powered by 8 (user supplied) C-cell batteries which will typically operate the telescope for around 20 hours (optional Meade Universal AC adapter also available). The mount additionally has mechanical locks and slow motion manual controls in both axis if for some reason you found yourself without power.

The LX200 GPS comes fully equipped with a heavy duty height adjustable Meade Field Tripod, 8x50 viewfinder.  Scope weight is about 70 pounds total.
