Combining a sophisticated level of performance, quality, features, Meade’s legendary optics and a price tag designed to work for most budgets, the LX90 ACF™ is a favorite among astronomers making the jump to their first serious, large aperture telescope. Available with Meade’s exclusive Advanced Coma-Free (ACF™) optics, the LX90 is an ideal high-resolution visual observing instrument but is also fully qualified for the more advanced areas of astronomy - including long exposure astrophotography.
• HIGH PERFORMANCE OPTICS
The LX90 ACF™ comes in a complete line of OTA apertures, from 8” to 12”. All sizes come with the Advanced Coma-Free (ACF™) optical system. The ACF™ optical system has brought the highest level of optical performance well within the reach of most amateurs. Using the Meade-exclusive 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. Meade’s LX90 also features Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC™). UHTC™ are specialized multi-layered coatings that are precisely designed to improve the performance of your telescope’s optics. You’ll see brighter star clusters, more fine detail in nebulae, and additional surface features on planets. Averaged over the entire visible spectrum, total light transmission to the focus increases by 15%.
• SMART DRIVE™
Meade’s AudioStar® provides Periodic Error Correction (in polar mode). Over the course of one or more training periods, your LX90 will minimize guiding corrections during long exposure astrophotography.
• BUILT-IN GPS
The LX90’s built-in GPS sensor precisely provides the time, date, and location - allowing for a quick assisted alignment.
