Meade now brings to market a sophisticated Catadioptric optical design favored by research facilities worldwide at a price many enthusiasts can afford.  Most professional applications are this style telescope or a gargantuan apochromatic refractor.  Meade's 16" LX200-ACF provides an enormous deep space aperture in a complete package appropriate for professional and advanced amateur observers.

Advanced f/10.0 Optics
Advanced catadioptric optics perfect for demanding research and enthusiast imaging
GPS Receiver Sensor
The LX200 features a Sony® GPS receiver sensor, which automatically inputs ultra-exact time, date & location values to quickly align the telescope with remarkable precision; down to one arc minute!
Smart Mount & Smart Drive Technology
By constantly refining the pointing accuracy each time an object is centered and updated, Meade's Smart Mount™ & Smart Drive™ technologies provide permanent periodic error corrections (PPEC) on both axes by learning and averaging errors over the course of one or more training periods, to minimize guiding corrections during long-exposure astrophotography.
Zero Image Shift Microfocuser & Primary Mirror Lock
The LX200 has incredibly fine focusing, and the primary mirror can be locked in place to benefit long-exposure astrophotography.
This version of the 16" LX200 includes the "SUPER GIANT" field tripod, adjustable from 40-50" (102-127 cm), and uses AC power.
