I do not have a clue as to information on that scope. I would love to have something like that, but there is not much of a way I could ever affort to have something like that made. I did not know that Meade evey made anything like that. It saddens me that it was stolen from you.

Mine did not have the mount with the dual knobs, or the finder scope (missing whan I bought it), but this is the right type. Funny Meade has absolutly no visible information on it.

I have a much older Japanese refractor, but the Meade was more powerful, and in much better condition.

Now, maybe it's time to search for a proper mount, as that was missing when I bought it. I'd take either AZ or EQ mount, but it has to fit the TOWA-made Meade scopes. See link in my 2nd post above. That's the AZ mount. Perhaps the TOWA branded scopes use the same mount? Contact me here or by PM if you think you have a mount I'd be interested in. I have the tripod, and the TOWA barrel clamp, but all parts in between were missing when I originally bought it. A finder scope might be nice too.
