Greetings fellow astrophile!
In the interest of reaching the larger CNY astronomy community, the SAS is happy to post information for people in the CNY area about astronomical equipment for sale. The SAS takes no responsibility for any aspect of the sale itself, but simply provides an outlet to members and nonmembers alike.
The following is available from Cathy Schmidt in CNY ((315)-725-9355 and firstname.lastname@example.org).
Our recent 2011 Summer Seminar Sponsor www.opticsplanet.net has a page of useful information about this scope at: www.opticsplanet.net/meade-lx200-gps-telescopes.html.
Info from Cathy:
This is a Meade LX200GPS 8-inch computerized telescope, purchased in 2003 for over $3,000. I don’t know too much about it as it was my husbands. I am asking $1,250.00.
This is a very large, heavy, professional telescope, complete with manual, original heavy-duty tripod, a padded & lockable case, all components (right angle adapters and computer controller) and a dedicated eyepiece case.
The eyepieces are as follows: 6.4 mm, 9.7 mm, 15 mm, 20 mm, 26 mm, 32 mm & 40 mm.
