Telescope is in good condition, Optics and mechanics. 
Comes with everything you need to start using it right away.

Meade UHTC Ultra High Transmission Coatings are an important feature to optimize the performance of your telescope. Technologies developed at the Meade coatings facility have optimized the visual and photographic performance of Meade telescopes. The UHTC coatings, upon all 4 optical surfaces, result in a 20% decrease in light loss and a dramatic enhancement in detail, particularly of tiny facets and deep space objects. New Heavy-Duty Fork Mounts: Meade LX-200 GPS Telescopes fork mounts are the strongest, most rigid mountings ever made available for telescopes of these apertures. DC-servo-motor-controlled (12v DC) worm gear drives with almost two hundred available drive speeds, combined with the Meade Smart Drive on both telescope axes, permit observatory-level precision in tracking, guiding, and slewing.

Precision GPS Alignment: Telescope alignment is accomplished automatically using signals from the GPS satellite system that enables extremely precise communication to the telescope of the observer's latitude and longitude, as well as local time. Integrated true-level and North electronic sensors in combination with a 16-channel GPS receiver located in the left-hand fork arm result in accurate telescope alignment to the sky at the touch of a button: Just press the ENTER button on the Autostar II hand controller and watch as the telescope measures level, points North, and slews at 8°/sec. to its first alignment star. Magnetic declination compensation designed into the telescope software automatically engages during the alignment process.

Smart Mount: Improves the pointing accuracy of your Meade 10" LX200-GPS Maksutov-Cassegrain Telescope's "Go To" system. Despite careful efforts to calibrate and then align telescopes, they may fail to precisely center objects. Smart Mount allows your telescope to learn about, and then correct for any systematic pointing errors, regardless of the cause.

Autostar II Control System: Completely redesigned and updated for the LX200GPS-SMT series, the Meade Autostar II control system includes the widest array of telescope capabilities ever offered in a commercial telescope.

Autostar Suite Software: which includes selecting objects from the planetarium display and automatically slewing to those objects, remote control via internet, the Lunar Planetary Imager (LPI), the creation of custom tours, talking telescope software, and the ability to control all autostar functions using your PC.

Built-in 145,000-Object Library Included as Standard Equipment: Enter into the Autostar II hand box any of the 145,000 celestial objects stored in the LX 200 GPS SMT onboard database, press GO TO, and the telescope automatically slews (moves) to the object at 8°/sec., centering it precisely in the main telescope field. Additionally, the display reads out for each selected object its magnitude, size, object-type, visual quality rating, RA and Dec. Or, let the telescope take you on an automatic guided tour of TONIGHT'S BEST.

Additional Autostar II Functions: Dozens of additional handbox functions, all easily and immediately accessible, make Autostar II the most powerful electronic tool ever developed for the serious amateur. A partial listing of fewer than half of these functions includes: GO TO capability to any input RA and Dec. coordinates; a 200-object user-defined library; event menus displaying the times and/or dates of Sunrise/Sunset, Moonrise/Moonset, Moon phases, meteor showers, minimum of Algol, equinoxes and solstices; custom-guided tours defined by the user; standard tours including Tonight's Best; 24-hour timer with beeper; alarm function with beeper sounds at selected times; 16-level display contrast adjust; red-LED utility light; battery alarm for low-battery warning; 7 alignment modes; sidereal, lunar, or any of 2000 custom tracking rates; factory-trained Smart Drive periodic error correction on both telescope axes with field-training capability.

Primary Mirror Lock: This revolutionary new rear-cell system is designed for the advanced visual observer, astrophotographer, and CCD imager. Turn a knob located just above the manual coarse-focus knob, and lock the telescope's primary mirror rigidly in place.
