    Product Description

    **This product is discontinued**

    The Meade LX70 6” Newtonian Reflector is equipped with a high-quality f/5 parabolic primary mirror. This fast f/5 optical system provides spectacular wide-field images for the discriminating deep-sky observer and astro-photographer. Its 6” aperture allows it to resolve details down to 0.76 arc-seconds across and can be viewed using the two included 1.25” Plossl eyepieces (9mm & 26mm). The 6x30 optical viewfinder with cross-hair reticle makes locating faint object quickly and easily. The 2" Crayford-style focuser ensures smooth motion when focusing.

    NOTE: Shown in photo with LX70 German Equatorial Mount, not included. Sold without the mount, ready for your own custom mounting.

    Product carries full one year Meade factory limited warranty.
