Meade LX70 overview

  • 1Description

Meade's manual LX70 German Equatorial Mount features brass worm-gear drives on both axes for smooth tracking performance, aluminum setting circles, and a built-in leveling bubble. The large-knob slow-motion control cables make it easy to track objects on frigid nights when wearing gloves is a necessity. Push-pull adjustments on both the declination and right ascension axes assist in fine-tuning the polar alignment, while the built-in latitude scale will help you dial in your site location quickly. The LX70 mount includes a Vixen-style dovetail for mounting optical tubes up to 20 pounds, an adjustable-height stainless steel tripod, and an accessory tray with holders for both 1.25" and 2" eyepieces.

    Meade LX70 reviews

    LX70 German Equatorial Mount is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from LX 70 has a problem with southern latitudes I recently purchased this mount and discovered it comes to a hard stop at about 32 latitude. I called Meade customer service thinking surely they had a solution for this but they informed me that it was a design limitation and suggested I adjusted the latitude with the telescopic legs. I wish I had known this prior to the purchase. As of now my plan is to try to make some modifications as I only need to gain three more degrees and I don't really feel like shipping it back to B&H.
