The Meade revolutionary LS ™ LightSwitch™ series of telescopes make use of state-of-the-art technologies such as GPS, LNT™ and ECLIPS™ CCD imaging to do what no other consumer telescopes have done previously: that is to take all the complications out of using a telescope.
Merely flick the switch and the LS automatically aligns itself. Astronomer Inside™ then takes you on a guided multimedia tour of the best objects in your sky. The aluminium mount is lightweight and portable, yet has a rigid structure with precision worm-gear drives for the ultimate in tracking and pointing accuracy.
All this combined with Meade's Advanced Coma-Free or Schmidt-Cassegrain optics provide the stargazer with the most sophisticated, yet easiest to use telescope ever.
Meade LS 6" ACF LightSwitch telescope. The award-winning 6" f/10 (1524mm focal length) and LS 8-Inch ACF (f/10)(2000mm focal length) powerhouse telescopes are feature packed and portable. Meade's Patented automatic self alignment system aligns with just one touch of the power switch. Just flip the switch and walk away. It aligns itself.
