Meade's LX90 ACF is a favorite of astronomers making the jump to their first, serious, large 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. Performance, quality, value and ease of use are the hallmarks of a great telescope. Now’s your chance to own the legend.
ADVANCED COMA-FREE OPTICS
The LX90-ACF comes in a complete line of OTA apertures, from 8-inch to 12-inch. All sizes come with the Advanced Coma-Free (ACF) optical systems. The Advanced Coma-Free optical system has brought the highest level of optical performance well within the reach of most amateurs. Using the Meadeexclusive design, ACF optics achieve aplanatic performance — with a flatter field, reduced astigmatism and eliminated diffractions spikes — equal to Ritchy-Chétien systems, at a fraction of the price. Coupled with Meade’s Ultra- High Transmission Coatings (standard on all LX90-ACF systems), you have the ultimate in premium optics.
