Meade NEAF 2017 Demo - Save Big!



This LX70 Dual Axis Drive System is from the Meade booth at the NEAF Astronomy Show on April 7-8, 2017. It will be shipped to the show from the manufacturer as a new item, unpacked, and shown to the crowd over the weekend, and then re-packed and sold to High Point. Here are a few things to keep in mind if you buy this product:




  • We assume all NEAF 2017 demos will have a condition rating of 9.5 to 10 when it ships to the buyer. Each item will be inspected upon arrival at our warehouse, and if the condition isn’t as expected, we will notify the buyer before we ship to give you a chance to cancel or negotiate.


  • All NEAF 2017 Demo items come with the full manufacturer’s warranty.


  • PICK UP AT NEAF: If you want to buy this item ahead of time and pick it up at the end of the show on Sunday, that can be arranged, just give us a call. You CANNOT take the item before the end of the show on Sunday since Meade needs it available to demo to customers.


  • SHIPMENT: This item will NOT ship until April 13/14, since obviously, it will be busy being admired by NEAF goers or be in transit until then. You will receive a confirmation email when your purchase ships, just like always. If you have any questions, give us a call or start a chat.



Meade Dual Axis Motor Drive for LX70 Mount


The Meade LX70 Equatorial Mount comes standard with slow-motion controls and simple locking levers that allow the user to make manual movements to find an object and keep that object centered in the field of view of the eyepiece. This works fine for visual observations, but if you want to photograph the heavens through your telescope, you'll need a dual-axis drive system to not only move your telescope electronically, but to keep an object centered so that your camera can capture a sharp image. Adding motors to your mount also makes it more pleasurable to view objects for longer periods of time without requiring that you break away to center the object as it drifts through the field of view. In other words, adding dual-axis drives is a great upgrade to your LX70 mount whether you are a visual observer, an imager, or both!


The Meade LX70 Dual-Axis Drive System comes with two motors (one for the RA axis and one for Declination) and a hand controller. The controller offers three speeds for different actions...2X, 4X and 8X sidereal. A North/South switch on the controller allows for use in both hemispheres. The LX70 Dual-Axis Drive system requires four (4) D batteries, which are user supplied.
