Equipment for Sale/Trade / Selling my Meade LX 90 8 inch SCT with extras
« Last post by Andy Pyatt on April 05, 2020, 09:13:03 pm »
Hi to all, I am making a change in equipment and selling my Meade LX90 8 inch SCT.  It is roughly 2.5 years old but has had limited use in the past year.  If you have seen me at Sidewalk Astronomy events, you have probably seen this.  This is the newer design with the ACF Advanced Coma Free glass. I have the original 1.25 inch diagonal but am including the 2 inch dielectric diagonal  (99% reflective) from GSO.  I am including an Astrozap dew shield.  I also have an equatorial wedge for it that I only used once AND have a Meade Eyepiece case with several Meade plossls to sweeten the deal.  I will put it on Cloudy nights in a few days but would like to make it easy and offer to someone in our group first.  Over $2000 in it and will sell to a member for $850.  Will likely put it on CN for $1K.  Call or message me if interested:  Andy:  941-320-4271.

Hello Allen,
 I'm a bit late seeing this thread - anyway, the address for the observing field is 16405 Myakka Rd
Go East on Fruitville to the end, hang a right. It swerves around and the entrance is on the left side.  There is a log sign with a yellow sign. Not well marked.  If you cross a bridge, then you just went past it.
Gate may be locked. combo is 1974.  shut gate behind you, and drape the lock & chain to look locked while you are in there.
Be sure to lock it up when you leave, and leave no debris.

I may add, once you drive across the cattle tracks, hang a right. you will see an open field with a short power pole surrounded by concrete pads. That's the spot.  Drive on the grass. Park by the pads, avoid driving on the pads please. 

There's a restroom at the building within sight (the learning center) if needed.

Call me if you get turned around... 
Clear skies.

Allen,

Your post is in the wrong section regarding Crowley.
All Crowley activity is in a section near the top. It is the third section down. There you can find who and when Crowley events occur. There is a gate lock. As luck would have it with the CV stuff occurring it's been slow out there lately. I am sure Sean will see you original post and respond also

The grassy field/parking area for the museu is the observing site.  Gets pretty dark there relative to being in town.

Hi

C an anyone point me to a Map to the Crowley Observing Site (within the site)?

I've searched a bit for the Crowley Observing site. Nothing so far. I can get to the Museum but where from there?  I'd like to drag my SCT next weekend there to practice my meager skills in dark skies.
