Meade 12" LX90 ACF Telescope Bundle
with 13-Piece Accessory Kit & 7AH Portable Battery


  • With twice as much aperture as an 8" telescope, you won't believe how bright and detailed even the most distant deep-sky objects look with the Meade 12" LX90-ACF. The optics provide a flat, coma-free field of view that displays round, pleasing stars, even at the edges of your eyepiece or sensor. GoTo electronics will take you to your choice of 30,000 celestial objects, and cutting edge technology incorporated into the electronics of the Meade LX90 help you align, point, and track with precision and ease.


  • The Meade 12" LX90-ACF Telescope comes standard with a heavy-duty tripod, AudioStar controller with Astronomer Inside, an 8x50 finderscope, 1.25" diagonal prism, and a 26mm Super Plossl eyepiece.


  • This special bundle package also includes a High Point Ultimate Plossl Eyepiece Kit, which includes 5 eyepieces, a set of 6 planetary filters, a 2X Barlow, and an aluminum case to keep them in!


  • You’ll also receive a Celestron 7AH 12V Rechargeable Power Tank; a portable battery that you can take anywhere, and use to power this telescope as well as other accessories. In order to use the Power Tank with your Meade LX90, we've included the Meade #607 12V DC Power Cord. You can read more about all the components of the 12" LX90-ACF Telescope Bundle below:


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 High Point Ultimate Plossl Eyepiece and Filter Set

Talk about instant gratification! This amazing 1.25” accessory kit includes five 1.25” Plossl eyepieces, a 1.25” 2X Barlow lens, and six filters that can be used to increase your enjoyment of planetary & lunar observations, and they come in a nice accessory case with die-cut foam that has room for extra components.



If you count the 26mm Plossl eyepiece that comes standard with the Meade LX90 telescope, you will have a total of SIX eyepieces to choose from, which is more than most people collect over years of observing. Six is a lot, but with the addition of the included 2X Barlow, you will be able to choose from twelve (12) different magnifications! Need to magnify the view of that cool crater on the Moon? No problem, you’ll have lots of higher magnification options to choose from. What about lowering your power to allow your telescope to collect the distant light of a faint galaxy? This kit includes a 32mm eyepiece, which will give you lower magnifications for jobs that require maximum light-gathering.


Here is a list of the eyepieces you will receive in this kit:




  • 32 mm Plossl Eyepiece - 1.25”

  • 15 mm Plossl Eyepiece - 1.25”

  • 9 mm Plossl Eyepiece - 1.25”

  • 6 mm Plossl Eyepiece - 1.25”

  • 4 mm Plossl Eyepiece - 1.25”


All of the eyepieces in the High Point Eyepiece and Filter Kit feature a standard 1.25” barrel size to fit the standard LX90 diagonal. These Plossl eyepieces have a 52º apparent field of view and are of a 4-element design with premium optical glass, edge blackened lenses, and fully multi-coated optics for great contrast and light transmission. Each eyepiece in the Ultimate Plossl Eyepiece and Filter Kit has a soft rubber eyecup for comfort.



This kit also includes a High Point 2x "shorty" type Barlow lens to double the power of any of the included (or any other 1.25") eyepiece.



You will also receive six high-quality planetary filters: #12 yellow, #56 yellow/green, #21 orange, #25 red, #80A medium blue, and #58a dark green. These 1.25” filters are very useful for bringing out various details on the planets. All of the filters simply screw onto the barrel of any of the eyepieces included in this kit, or any standard 1.25” eyepiece you can purchase in the future.



All of the accessories are packed in a nice accessory case (see picture to the left). The Die-cut foam interior protects the eyepieces and filters from dust and dew, and hold them firmly in place regardless of the position the case is in. As you can see from the picture, there is still some room inside the case for a few more accessories, like the standard 26mm eyepiece and the 1.25” diagonal.
