Meade LX85 6" Newtonian Reflector OTA

This 6" Newtonian Reflector is an optical tube assembly designed to reveal the depths of space without breaking your budget. While this Newtonian is designed for the LX85 mount, it can fit on a wide variety of mounts. In fact, this 6” Newtonian is much more portable and lightweight than a 6” refractor, capable of revealing deep space in your backyard, campsite, or even remote dark sky locations. Just pack it up, and go!

The Meade LX85 6” Newtonian Reflector has a fast f/5 focal ratio, yielding bright, wide field images of the sky. You will be amazed by the true-color images of the Moon, planets, deep-sky objects, and other celestial wonders. Amateur astronomers who wish to try their hand at astro-imaging will appreciate the wide field of view.

A 1.25" 90-degree mirror diagonal is included. 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!
