About the Meade 12" LX90 Telescope

This Meade LX90-ACF telescope has a 12” diameter f/10 ACF optical system and Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC) for maximum image brightness and contrast. This largest of the LX90 models, the 12" collects over twice as much light as an 8" telescope, effectively doubling the image brightness on faint deep sky targets. Electronics include the advanced Meade AudioStar computer system with over 30,000 object library, multiple guided tours, High Precision Pointing capability, and Meade SmartDrive with Permanent Periodic Error Correction. Precise and quick star alignment is done near effortlessly with an incorporated 16 channel genuine Sony GPS receiver. The Autostar is flash-updatable via free downloads at Meade.com (optional cable required).

All LX90 models feature the solid and stable LX90 aluminum double fork mount, with fast slew speed adjustable from 1 to 7 degrees per second. Fine slewing and photographic guiding speeds can be adjusted from .01x to 1x sidereal in one one-hundredth increments. The mount and all electronics are internally powered by 8 (user supplied) C-cell batteries which will typically operate the telescope for a generous 60 hours. The mount also has mechanical locks in both axis allowing adjustment even without power.

AudioStar with Astronomer Inside is the latest addition to many of Meade's world-class telescopes, including this one. In short, AudioStar is like having your very own personal astro guide by your side. Astronomer Inside can uniquely select the best objects from your sky based on your location and the time of night you are observing. AudioStar then plays descriptions of each object so you can learn about what you are seeing. Astronomer Inside has audio content for planets, stars, constellations, star clusters, nebula, galaxies and much more.

About the 13-Piece 1.25" Filter and Eyepiece Kit*

This eyepiece and filter kit is an amazing deal and will allow you to match your telescope’s magnification to different types of celestial objects, such as the Moon, the planets, brighter compact deep-sky objects such as star clusters and larger, more diffuse objects like galaxies and nebulae. Use any of your eyepieces alone, or pair them with the included 2X Barlow to double the magnification! Not counting any eyepieces you receive as standard equipment with your telescope, that means you will have ten (10) magnifications to choose from!

You will also receive six filters to use while viewing the planets. It takes some experimentation, but different colored filters will make details on a planet’s surface or cloud structure more prominent. These glass filters have threaded aluminum cells that screw onto the bottom of any of the eyepieces in this kit, as well as other 1.25” eyepieces you purchase later. Before long, you will know exactly which filter to use to more easily see, for instance, the polar ice caps on Mars or storms in the cloud structure of Jupiter.

All of the eyepieces and filters in this kit come stored in an aluminum case. Inside you will find protective foam that cushions your astronomy accessories. The case may be silver or black, it all depends on our availability at the time, but either way, you will find that there is some extra room for more telescope eyepieces, filters, or other small accessories.

Please Note: The brand of the eyepiece & filter kit you receive will depend upon availability. Rest assured that you will receive five (5) 1.25 eyepieces, a 2X 1.25” Barlow lens and six (6) 1.25” filters in an aluminum case, however, the focal lengths of the eyepieces and the color of the filters, while all of similar quality, will vary slightly, and the aluminum case will be either silver or black. The pictures shown are representative of the number and type of accessories you will receive in the case, but the styling of the eyepieces and filter colors may vary.
