About The Meade LX90 ACF and SC Models
The 'SC model' in the Meade LX90 telescope series provides you with high performance optics for an extremely competitive price, and for the individual aiming to get the most from their money, this could be an excellent choice.
Meade utilizes water-white glass with top-quality light transmission throughout the entire visible spectrum, in contrast to low quality standard plate glass employed by some other telescope manufacturers.
When combined with Meades industry-leading Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC) which have a 15% better light transmission than standard coatings, and oversized thermally-stable Pyrex® primary mirrors for optimum light collection, you get a stunning viewing experience not typically available on similar competitors telescopes.
Meade's LX90SC Schmidt-Cassegrain (SC) optics give you high performance for the best possible price. For the person looking to get the most from their astronomical dollar, look no further. Meade uses water-white glass with superior light transmission across the entire visible spectrum, unlike inferior standard plate glass used by other telescope manufacturers.

Then... there is the LX90-ACF which is for the truly discerning astronomer who will not accept anything but the very best. Meade's Advanced Coma-Free (ACF) optical system which takes all of the features of the SC models and then some.
Together with it's technically superior optical design, ACF provides a flatter, coma-free field of view with pinpoint images right to the edge of the field, rivaling Ritchey-Chrétien efficiency at a fraction of the cost.
LX90s are intelligent scopes that know the night sky right out of the box. Easy Align selects two alignment stars for you and positions them right in your viewfinder.Then you just center them to fine tune your alignment allowing you to tour the treasures of the universe
The Meade ACF must be the ultimate solution for the serious astroimager or visual astronomer who requires observatory class optics.
