Meade LX200 Telescope

The most extensively used research high quality Meade LX200 Telescope is one for the serious astronomer, and now features probably one of the most highly developed optical systems that you're likely to find anywhere.

Amateur astronomers can now benefit from the advanced Coma-Free (ACF) optics offered by the Meade LX200-ACF.

Practically every observatory reflector in the world employs an aplanatic (coma-free) optical system, and now you can acquire optics very similar to that which the industry experts use.

Meade LX200 ACF

The LX200-ACF telescope includes every one of the field-proven popular features of the LX200 most notably GPS, Primary Mirror Lock, Oversized Primary Mirror, SmartDrive™, Smart Mount™, AutoStar® II and more.

The LX200-ACF is the perfect platform for the demanding researcher and imaging enthusiast with telescopes available in apertures of 8 inches, 10 inches, 12 inches, 14 inches, and 16 inches.

This could be the greatest news in astronomy ever since, well, the LX200.

Meade engineers have developed a revolutionary new Advanced Coma Free design by combining a hyperbolic secondary mirror with a corrector-lens-and-spherical-primary-mirror combination that performs as one hyperbolic element.
