Meade 8" ACF Light Switch Computerized Telescope

When Meade announced LightSwitch Technology in early 2009, the amateur astronomy game changed. Simply flip a switch on a Meade 8 LightSwitch and it automatically aligns itself in the night sky. Built-in GPS, magnetic north sensors, level sensors and a CCD camera do all the work - within minutes you're observing with your Meade LS 8 ACF telescope!

Meade Astronomer Inside Technology:

Let your Meade 8 LightSwitch take you on a multi-media guided tour of the night sky. Choose the Tonight's Best tour and the Astronomer Inside automatically moves the telescope to the best objects in that night's sky. At each object, listen as the Astronomer Inside describes in detail, fascinating facts and history. Attach the optional LCD Color video monitor to your Meade LS 8 ACF and you now have a dazzling multi-media presentation that integrates rich audio and video. Or select your favorite object and your Meade 8 LightSwitch takes you to it and tells you all about it. It's like having an astronomer at your side!
