Meade LX85 8" ACF Telescope




With industry-leading optics, depth of features, and computerized operation, the Meade LX85 Advanced Coma-Free telescope is the best all-around OTA you will find. This unique optical design forms pinpoint star images without coma and a flat field that observatories and seasoned astrophotographers desire.



The LX85-ACF optical tube assembly is ideal for the seasoned visual astronomer and astrophotographers looking to take their craft to the next level. With Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UTHC), this scope shows brighter star clusters, more fine detail in nebulae, and greater surface features on planets. 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. It is also easy to attach this OTA to any number of mounts using the Vixen-style dovetail.



To start you off right, Meade is including two 1.25" eyepieces (a 26 mm and a 9 mm Super Plossl) as well as an 8 X 50 optical finder with the LX85 package. Your new telescope will be ready for observing right out of the box!
