Meade's revolutionary LS™ LightSwitch™ series of telescopes use advanced technologies like GPS and ECLIPS™ CCD imaging 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. The aluminum 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 (ACF) or Schmidt-Cassegrain optical systems proved the stargazer with the most sophisticated, yet easiest to use telescope ever.
