Advanced f/10 Optics
Advanced catadioptric optics perfect for demanding research and enthusiast imaging
Meade Ultra-High Transmission Coatings
UHTC increases total light transmission and image brightness by nearly 20% over Meade's standard coatings. Objects such as stars, galaxies and nebulae will appear significantly brighter.
Zero Image-Shift Microfocuser
Allows you to obtain precise image focus with no image movement
Primary Mirror Lock
Locks the mirror in place during long-exposure astrophotography.
Oversize Primary Mirror
Mirror diameters are greater than their listed aperture (e.g., the diameter of the 8" LX200 is actually 8.25"). This additional 1/4" yields a wide, fully illuminated field-of-view.
Smart Mount
Constantly refines pointing accuracy each time an object is centered and updated. Compatible with both equatorial and altazimuth mounts.
Smart Drive
Provides permanent periodic error correction (PPEC) on both axes by learning and averaging error over the course of one or more training periods, thereby minimizing guiding corrections during long-exposure photographs. PPEC is available on both axes and functions in both polar and altazimuth modes.
Sony GPS Receiver
Sensor automatically inputs precise time, date, and geographical location to help quickly and precisely align the telescope.
AutoAlign
Telescopes with Meade's new AutoAlign come pre-aligned.They are smart scopes that know the night sky right out of the box. AutoAlign picks two fail-proof alignment stars for you and places them right in your view-finder. Just center them to fine tune your alignment and the wonders of the universe are at your fingertips.
AutoStar II
The AutoStar II controller features "Hot Keys" for quick access to a 145,000 celestial object database. AutoStar II can be updated with the latest software upgrades, guided tours and timely objects like comets free at meade.com.
