For Sale: Meade 390 refractor telescope in excellent condition. This trusty, classic would be a terrific first astronomical telescope, a grab-and-go, or even a finder telescope on a truly large instrument. The Meade 390 is an achromat with a 90mm objective, 1,000mm F.L., making it f/11. Going with the scope are its mounting rings, tiny original finder, star diagonal, and a nice 25mm eyepiece. Price: $75. The original alt/az mount/tripod was terrible and discarded long ago. An upgraded Orion SkyView Pro mount and tripod are available separately. The tripod is sturdy and in excellent condition providing a steady view through the 390. An extension tube was added to raise the telescope for easy viewing of objects high above the horizon and is easily removed if not needed. The SkyView Pro mount is equipped with an electric clock drive (not go-to) on the R.A. only. Comes with battery pack. Price: $225. Local pickup preferred. James Guilford: guilford.james@gmail.com
