The Meade LX70 8” 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 8” aperture allows it to resolve details down to 0.57 arc-seconds across and can be viewed using the two included 1.25” Plossl eyepieces (9mm & 26mm). With its smooth 2” Crayford-style focuser it is equipped to handle wide-field 2” eyepieces out of the box. The 8x50 optical viewfinder with cross-hair reticle makes locating faint object quickly and easily.

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.
