This Meade 12" RCX400 and Tripod is an exceptional telescope system: a fully automated GPS-enabled got mount with substantial field tripod, supporting one the finest - if not the finest - example of commercially-produced Cassegrain telescopes ever made (those who've observed through an RCX will know what we mean).

This system as full electronic control of focus, collimation and built in dew heaters. It's carbon fibre tube means that while it's not light by any means, it's certainly easier to handle than a conventional metal tubed instrument. This particular one has had a good mechanical and electronic shakedown, and has had an internal loom replaced, which means it's good to go to a new home. Most of the mount is based on LX200 architecture, which means future servicing of the mount and its electronics shouldn't be an issue.

This system's supplied with a good deal of regular accessories and some extras too: the Meade Autostar II handset, the excellent Meade RCX field tripod, standard Meade 8x50mm Finderscope, a third party balance kit, 2" eyepiece holder and Meade's heavy duty 2" star diagonal.

Due to the complexity of this system's electronics, any future servicing of the optics and their control systems may prove reasonably complex, so with this is mind, the sale price set here is a realistic one - and as such represents quite a bargain. As long as the telescope is used regularly and not left for large periods of time unserviced, it should continue to perform admirably for years to come.

If you're after the best scope of its kind, this is it - don't miss out on this one.
