Meade LX85 8" Newtonian Reflector OTA - 217022
Meade LX85 8" f/5 Newtonian Reflector OTA
This Meade LX85 8" OTA is an excellent Newtonian reflector for both visual astronomy as well as astrophotography. In fact, the Meade LX85 Newtonian optical tube assembly is a great way to get started in astrophotography. The mirrored optics of Newtonian reflectors offer true color images that will impress even the most experienced refractor user. At 18.4lbs, the Meade LX85 8" reflector optical tube assembly is lightweight and portable enough to go with you to even the most remote dark sky locations. Although it is designed for Meade's LX85 mount, you can mount this optical tube assembly on many other mounts.
The Meade LX85 8” Newtonian Reflector is great for astrophotography as well. With a fast f/5 focal ratio you will notice bright, wide field images of the sky.
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!
