|12 inch Meade Lightbridge LNIB|
I am looking to DOWNGRADE in size, or sell outright.
I am looking to trade or sell my 12 inch Meade Lightbridge telescope. I just need something lighter to move around. I purchased the telescope brand new in boxes July / 2017. It's been used about 5 times total. No finderscope or red dot finder, but there is a shoe on the UTA for a RDF or optical finderscope. Also comes with the truss poles + fan at the back of the mirror + battery holder for the fan, plus more accessories as listed below.
When setting this up, as long as you match up the same truss poles every time, collimation is close to perfect each and every time.
I have tested the mirror at very high powers both inside and outside of focus have nearly identical diffraction patterns, so the mirror has a really good figure and the mirrors are still in pristine condition......just a slight bit of dust on them, (which is normal for the 5 times I used it outside).
Additional accessories (and regular) included :
-Meade Light Shroud $80
-6 bungee cords (to keep shroud out of light path) $30
-Carrying handles for mount and handle for UTA $15
-Dew shield + flocking (UTA is flocked) $45
-Three home made dust caps (one goes over the top LTA when not assembled. The other two cover the lower and upper tube assembly) $20
-Original boxes included for all parts
-Bob's knobs replacement collimation springs $30
-Dual speed Crayford Focuser
-Fan to cool the back of the mirror
-Focuser can be used on the left or right hand side
Over $200 in accessories alone, plus it is like new still.
I am looking to trade for a solid tube, 10 inch Intelliscope Dob in like new condition with the push-to system on it + $200 cash or paypal funds to even the deal or 10 inch Skywatcher Dob in Mint condition + $500 . Absolutely NOTHING WRONG with it at all, I just need something lighter in weight to move around.
PS: I will need to check your scope out first under the stars before I make the trade. I will also set mine up for the night so you can see how it also performs under the stars as well, so we are both happy. Or if you are just buying mine, I will set it up for you and show you how it is before you decide to buy it.
LOCAL TRADE ONLY. I DO NOT DRIVE SO YOU WILL HAVE TO COME SET UP IN MY BACKYARD ON A CLEAR NIGHT ON THE HAMILTON MOUNTAIN. IF BUYING, PICKUP ONLY @ $1,000 CASH.
Let me know what you have, or if you'd like to buy.
Thanks for looking.
