Product Description

**COMING SOON**

Meade’s 16” LightBridge™ Plus offers a 16” (406mm) aperture with 1829mm (f/4.5) focal length. Accessories include: 2” 26mm Eyepiece (providing 48x magnification), metal red-dot viewfinder to help easily locate objects in the night sky, and 2” to 1.25” adapter to provide the ability to use a wide range of different eyepieces. Heaviest component: 40 lbs.

Meade’s LightBridgecontinues its legacy with the LightBridgePlus Series Telescopes. The LightBridgePlus Telescopes have a modern, sleek design that incorporates a no-tool assembly build. These telescopes have a large light-gathering capability to provide bright, clear images when viewing deep-space objects such as galaxies, nebulae, planets, and much more.

If you’ve ever wanted a large aperture telescope but were unable to have the ability to move it around on your own, Meade’s LightBridge Plus Telescopes are here to make it practical. Available in 10, 12, & 16-inch apertures, this open truss design allows for increased portability over standard solid-tube designs and is able to provide easy setup and teardown for a large aperture telescope.

The redesigned Dobsonian base has a no-tool assembly and provides improved stability. Includes premium features such as roller bearings, a hand-adjustable variable tension brake for smooth and stable movement, and a mounted eyepiece holder that can carry (1) 2” and (3) 1.25” eyepieces for your convenience.

The LightBridge Plus Series Telescopes feature an upgraded 2”, 2-speed Rack and Pinion Focuser. The Rack & Pinion design includes a 10:1 fine focus knob for precise focusing and includes a Vernier scale with millimeter markings on the drawtube to assist with focusing accuracy.

Included with the LightBridge Plus Telescopes is a 3-element, fully multi-coated  2” Series 4000 26mm Eyepiece - providing a 56 degree apparent field of view -  and an aluminum Red-Dot Viewfinder. Also included is Meade’s AutoStar Suite Astronomer Edition- displaying more than 15,000 celestial wonders, this software allows you to view the night sky, constellations, planet positions and more from any location.

The LightBridge Plus Series provides high-quality Meade® optics, ultra-portability, and remarkable performance for one affordable price. Get the aperture you’ve always wanted and open the doors to a whole new universe with Meade’s LightBridge Plus.
