This is a massive Meade Pictor kit that I received with a 10-inch LX200 6 years ago. I played with a little of it, but in truth, I am a visual person and was VERY good at film astrophotography with a lot invested in my Olympus gear. And when film was omitted forever, I never got my heart back into the game and I know I never will. So it is time to let this setup go...and believe me it is a very good, VERY WELL taken care of setup.

*Reserve is set VERY LOW; way under $500 though there is a lot of expensive equipment here*

This is all going to come in (3) lockable, foam-lined and cut cases; all made by Meade. The (2) black cases will come with their keys, but the keys will work on the smaller, smoky gray case. Just a few of the items you will receive....

Pictor 201XT with all cables
Pictor 416XTE with all cables and the large imaging handset
Pictor 616 Color Filter System with cables (no filters included, but are easy to replace)
Off Axis Guider kit
Model 1220 Field De-Rotator with cables
Variable Projection Tele-Extender kit
Another Off Axis Guider with all attachments
CCD Variable T-adapter
Software disc in sleeve
Electronic 18v DC adapter
Wall outlet transformer
Countless more RS-232 and phone jack cables and adapters
Car battery alligator hookups 
1206 Electric focuser (nearly complete and tested to work GREAT)
LOTS of manuals (manual for 616 not in photos, yet included)

This is a lot of high quality Meade imaging goodies here. They have been properly stored always in a fully climate controlled basement both by me and the previous owner. I last fired-up the autoguider and imager back in 2019 and found no issues with any of it. So take a good long look at the numerous photos I've included and see if this works for your imaging pursuits.

Dimensions in inches and weights of the cases BEFORE PACKING:

Black case 1:  20.1 L x 16.4 W x 9.1 H  15 pounds 4 ounces

Black case 2:  20.1 L x 16.4 W x 9.1 H  13 pounds 15 ounces

Smoky gray case 3:  18.4 L x 13.0 W x 6.7 H  10 pounds

Cosmetics on the cases are excellent to very excellent. All shut and seal perfectly. No crooket seams, no faulty latches or carry handles, and no crush zones. The ccd units and their associated attachments are in mint to excellent condition. Adapters and cables are in mint to very excellent condition. The manuals are in mint condition.

Because of the size of this setup, I am willing to meet up to 250 miles outside of the Spokane, WA area with a very reasonable gas charge in order. I am also more than happy to ship to anyone on the planet.
