USED GEAR INFORMATION
This scope is in decent condition. There are some cosmetic imperfections such as scratches on the equatorial wedge, tripod, and fork arm. The optics are in good condition, albeit slightly dusty. Keep in mind: This scope is extremely heavy and bulky. If you want to move this scope around from site to site, make sure your are confident that you have the physical ability to do so (it took three people for us to get it set up to test it).

All LX200 models feature a primary mirror locking mechanism, which effectively prevents movement of the primary mirror during long exposure astrophotography or observing. Turn the lock knob located just above the telescopes main focus knob and the progressive-tension primary lock completely cancels any residual image shift due to mirror movement during visual, photographic, or imaging applications.
The 12" LX200 Optical Tube Assembly #1210-60-01 has a 3048mm focal length, an f/10 focal ratio, and weighs 35lbs.
