meade 10" f/6.3

Can you describe the scope a little more? I am assuming that it is a Newtonian, but do you have a model number? The condition is important as well.

It has been a while since Meade made the 10 inch sct in a 6.3.As to worth it all depends on how good the condition is.
Could go from 200 up .A lot depends on the market for it.

It's an SCT. Maybe lx200 or LX6. It's selling for $650. Sounds a little high but I'm not sure. No mount just OTA.
The f/6.3 OTA, especially if it's from an LX200, could fetch quite a bit. When the f/6.3 OTAs first came out back in 1991 as the LX6/2120 Premiere, Meade had hits and misses as some of their f/6.3 OTAs were great while others were optically inferior.
By the time Meade introduced the LX200 in an f/6.3 variant, the optics had improved greatly.
I own an LX200 f/6.3 that was formerly an LX6 2120 Premiere, and the optics on it are outstanding.
If the optics are outstanding, and there's no abberations or astigmatism, followed by spot-on collimation, $500-$600 will be a reasonable price for a 10" OTA.
