Question on value of Meade LXD55 and 152ED

I've come into possession of several telescopes including a Meade LXD55 and 152ED. Both have rings and only the 152ED appears to have a mounting plate.

I've been trying to find out their value but not finding much for just scopes w/o an appropriate mount or eyepieces.

Assuming the glass is good what might be their resale value? I live in the SF bay area btw.

Both scopes are extremely large and require a fairly large tripod. I also have a CG-11 which appears to have the type of tripod required (G-11) but this has a C11 on it.

Is there a name for the class of tripod (or mount) that these telescopes require?

Below is a pic of the 152ED
