I am selling my Meade 10 inch RCX and RCX accessories (available separately or with the scope). The scope is in excellent condition and is in fully working order. I am embarrassed to say it, but I have not been able to use it much. If fact, everything below (except where noted) is in brand new condition. The scope looks almost as good as the day it was purchased. The photos show a little dust on the corrector, but the optics are in perfect condition!

10 inch Meade RCX400 ($1750 without tripod): (Pending to Gary)
- 12V cigarette lighter plug car adapter
- 100V-250V wall adapter
- RS232 cable
- Meade Series 4000 32mm 1.25 inch Plossl eyepiece (not pictured)
- Peterson Engineering Get-A-Grip handles (original handles included also)
- Peterson Engineering EZ Clutch Upgrade (installed)
Note: There is no finder scope included, even though one is pictured.

RCX400 Tripod ($500): (No longer available)
- Includes a homemade (Rubbermaid) storage box (holds tripod, dew shield and wedge - see photos)
- Has a few small scratches near the bottom of the legs from wear and tear, but this does not affect performance in the least. It is solid as a rock too!
Note: I will not sell the tripod separate from telescope, unless I have a paid buyer for the scope who does not want the tripod. In other words, the scope buyer has the right of first refusal and then it is fair game. If you are interested in the tripod only, drop me a note and I will contact you once the scope is sold.

Other 10 inch RCX items (available immediately to anyone who wants them):
- JMI scope case (without wheel kit) for 10 inch RCX or 12 inch LX200 (brand new condition) - $450 (Pending to Gary)
- Mitty Evolution Wedge (listed separately on Astromart Classifieds)
- Astrozap Aluminum Dew Shield (brand new condition) - $75 (Pending to Gary)
- ADM top and bottom D Series (Losmandy) dovetail bars (mounted, but never used) - $125
- Meade Series 5000 24mm 2 inch UWA Eyepiece (has slight damage to the coating around outside edge of top lens, but does not seen to affect performance) - $50 (Sold)
- Peterson Engineering Eye Opener II (New in Box) - $50
- Peterson Engineering Eye Opener II 2 inch tube adapter (New in Box) - $30

I will cover PayPal fees, but Buyer is responsible for paying shipping and insurance, which I will coordinate with buyer after shipping location is known. Smaller items can go USPS, but the larger items will need to go UPS. I am willing to drive a reasonable distance (maybe ~150 - 200 miles) to meet a buyer for the scope, but buyer pays for gas. I am located in the Virginia Beach/Norfolk, VA area.

Thanks for looking and I will be happy to answer any questions!
