Meade 8" LX65 ACF Telescope

The Meade 8" LX65-ACF is a great asset to the experienced visual observer. The Advanced Coma Free optics are enhanced with Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UTHC). This coating makes star clusters appear brighter, nebulae show more detail, and planetary surface features pop. When it comes to industry-leading optics, depth of features, and computerized operation, the LX65-ACF is the best all-around telescope value you can find.

The 6" LX65-ACF is also perfect for astro-imaging. The LX65-ACF features an innovative optical design that shows you coma-free pinpoint star images as well as the flatter field. These factors are crucial to astrophotographers and many professional observatories. Meade's Advanced Coma-Free system also reduces astigmatism and eliminates diffractions spikes found in classical RC telescopes. No competing Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope can make those claims.

To start you off right, Meade is including a 26mm Super Plossl eyepiece that will reveal 70X magnified views. You will also receive a 1.25" star diagonal so you can comfortably observe celestial objects all night long.
