Meade Instruments began in 1972 as John Diebel’s one-man mail order business and has grown to be one of the most influential telescope companies in the world. Meade was founded on the principle that amateur astronomers deserve quality products for a reasonable price and excellent customer service. John’s vision remains an integral aspect of Meade today, serving amateur astronomers throughout the world with a wide variety of telescope and accessories.
Amazing innovations, like the introduction of the ground-breaking Meade LX-200 in 1992, keep customers coming back again and again, and modern telescope designs, like the LX850 series of Meade telescopes, with its advanced StarLock and LightSwitch technology, keeps Meade at the top of their game. Meade has become a competitive manufacturer in astro-imaging as well, with their LX850 and LX600, making them a dominating force in the field of astronomy.
