      5.0 Meade LX600 with Tripod - ordered from Agena




      I am very satisfied with the delivery of my new LX600. From my order, it arrived surprisingly promptly, delivered by truck on a pallet. No shipping damage which I was very happy to see. I had no trouble assembling the scope and was observing the next night. Nothing was missing in the Meade packaging. I also ordered the micro-focuser and a few more items which I highly recommend. Its been a wonderful experience :)

      Bottom Line: Would you recommend this item? Yes
      Was this review helpful? Yes / No
