Meade engineers have taken the next step in astrophotographic evolution. The LX850 combines innovative concepts like Starlock™ fulltime automatic guiding and high-precision pointing, f/8 ACF OTAs with internal Crayford-style two-speed focuser and a portable precision German equatorial mount.
Meade’s remarkable LX600 f/8 ACF with StarLock technology takes a giant leap forward by making astro-imaging much easier and making setup and transportation a breeze. The LX600 is a simple to operate, portable package that makes taking great astrophotos as easy as focusing your camera and opening the shutter.
From its introduction in 1992, the LX200 has always been a product for which all others compared to. Over 20 years later the LX200 ACF still meets this criterion. Superb optical performance coupled with time proven computerized pointing and tracking has made the LX200 ACF series a best-seller in the high-performance telescope class.
Meade’s LX90 ACF is a favorite of astronomers making the jump to their first, serious, larger aperture telescope. Long after they have read the reviews, compared specifications, visited the blogs and talked to wizened astronomers, all roads point to the LX90.
For crisp wide-field observing and imaging, few optical designs match the performance of a true triple-element apochromatic refractor. Meade Series 6000 ED Triplet APO refractors compete head-to-head with the world's premium APOs at a fraction of the cost.
Meade's revolutionary LS LightSwitch™ series of telescopes use advanced technologies to do what no other consumer telescopes have done before: take all the hassle out of using a telescope. Simply flip 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.
