Meade LX90 8" Telescope & LX200 tripod GPS Autostar - Excellent Condition - L@@K
Meade LX90 Telescope & LX200 tripod complete with GPS module & Meade Autostar with library of more than 30 000 objects. Bought by myself December last and used a few times. The item has mostly been in storage and comes complete with original packaging.
Basically the Telescope is in a excellent condition & comes with accessories which include an improved Celestron Spotting scope, Red dot finder and cables to connect directly to a laptop for more control & screen capture. I'm also selling a dewshield and an assortment of lenses in separate sales.
I will reluctantly post the item within the UK (postage £25.00) only if the buyer insists and is willing to pay for the insurance. I wont be able to take any responsibility for the courier company if any damage occurs to the item. As such I much prefer collection as this is a very sensitive piece of equipment. I am prepared to deliver the item within 100m of Norwich if the buyer is prepared to pay for petrol.
Welcome to serious astronomy. Here's your scope.
The LX90 can locate over 30,000 objects including itself. Turn it on and the built-in GPS receiver immediately determines your precise date, time, and location. In just minutes, your scope is ready to give you a tour of the most spectacular sights in the universe with GPS precision.
GPS Receiver. LX90 can do more than track satellites. It talks to them as well. Turn it on and the built-in Sony® GPS sensor immediately determines your precise date, time and location. AutoAlign™ then uses this info to align your scope for a tour of the most spectacular sights in the universe.
Easy Align™. LX90s are smart scopes that know the night sky right out of the box. Easy Align picks two alignment stars for you and places them right in your viewfinder. Just center them to fine tune your alignment and the wonders of the universe are at your fingertips.
Oversized Primary Mirror. Only Meade manufactures their primary mirrors in diameters larger than their listed aperture (e.g. the diameter of the 8" LX90's primary mirror is actually 8.25").This additional 1/4" yields a wider, fully illuminated field-of-view, and allows you to see the light other telescopes leave behind.
8 x 50 Viewfinder. Quickly and easily locate and center deep sky objects.
Slew Speed. The LX90 slews (moves) from star to star at 7 degrees per second. That is more than twice as fast as the competition. This means that over the course of an evening, a Meade LX90 will show you two to three times more objects.
Rigid cast aluminum fork mount.The Meade LX90's Optical Tube Assembly is mounted on two sturdy fork arms giving you a rock solid platform for astrophotography.
Smart Drive™. Meade's AutoStar® provides Periodic Error Correction (in polar mode). Over the course of one or more training periods your LX90 will minimize guiding corrections during long exposure astrophotography.
AutoStar® Hand Controller. The industry standard. Used by more astronomers than any other system for everything from backyard observing and imaging to observatory research.
