(3) Meade 10" f/8 RCX400's With Fork Mount and Accessories - All Excellent!

I hate like heck to sell these but my bad back will no longer allow me to lift. These scopes were purchased at different times from private individuals. All are in excellent condition. I mainly used them visually and occasionally for planetary where they performed extremely well with crisp views.
I have tested the motor slewing on all telescopes (which works fine) but have not tested the GPS. They are all collimated.

One RCX400 has been supercharged by Dr. Clay Sherrod (currently an $895 charge). This RCX400 has the Peterson Engineering Get-A-Grip carrying handles installed. Price is $2199 for this one.

One RCX400 has the Peterson Engineering Get-A-Grip carrying handles and Peterson Engineering EZ Clutch upgrade already installed. Price is $1799.

The other RCX400 is priced at $1699.

Included with all RCX400's are the Autostar II controller and I should have a couple of finders and finder brackets for two of the three.
There is one original (inner) Meade box for the RCX400. This will be included along with the first scope sold if desired.

Also for sale are the following:
(Note: these items are for sale initially along with the telescopes, not independently, unless they don't sell and then I will sell them separately)

Only two photos are displayed since the scopes are all essentially the same.

These are for pickup only. My back would not permit me ship one of these.
