The LX90 Series

Meade's LX90 ACF is a favorite of astronomers making the jump to their first, serious, large aperture telescope. Long after they have read the reviews, compared specifications, visited the blogs and talked to wizened astronomers, all roads point to the LX90. Performance, quality, value and ease of use are the hallmarks of a great telescope. Now’s your chance to own the legend.

Meade Advanced Coma-Free

The patented Meade Advanced Coma-Free (ACF) optical design offers the coma-free pinpoint star images and flatter image fields greatly desired by discerning amateur astronomers, astrophotographers and professional observatories alike. This system also reduces the astigmatism and eliminates the diffraction spikes found in classical Ritchey-Chrétien designs. No competing Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope can make those claims.

AudioStar™ Computer System with Astronomer Inside

The AudioStar™ brings a whole world of astronomy to life in just a few clicks. A simple alignment process can guide your scope to any object in their impressive database of over 30,000 objects while you listen to your favourite guided tour from their vast library of educational resources. The multiple guided tours can be played using the speaker and will entertain not only you but your friends and family. 

LX90 Aluminium Mount

The LX90 series is a dream for even the most demanding of astrophotographers and astronomers with its exceptional smooth controls, accurate tracking and its sturdiness that keeps your OTA locked securely and operating at its peak. How do they do this? The LX90 models feature a LX90 aluminium double fork mount, with fast slew speeds adjustable from 1 to 7 degrees per second. Further customisation is offered with fine slewing and photographic guiding speeds being adjustable from .01x to 1x sidereal in one one-hundredth increments.

Powering this mount can not be any easier. The mount and all electronics may be powered by 8 C-cell batteries (operating time of around 60 hours) or using a Universal AC Adapter (purchased separately). If the case of an emergency or a black out, your mount has mechanical locks in both axis which means that you can manually adjust it without power. So no matter the circumstance, the LX90 Aluminium Mount is ready to deliver a phenomenal viewing experience.

The complete package

Even the acccessories chosen by the Meade engineers after extensive research are high quality, useful and highly desirable accessories by most amateur astronomers. The LX90 comes with a heavy duty height adjustable Meade Field Tripod, 1.25" diagonal prism, Series 4000 26mm 5-Element Plössl eyepiece, and Meade AutoStar® Suite Astronomer Edition Software for PC and an 8x50 optical viewfinder with quick release bracket. If there's anything we know about the LX90 series, it is that they are well equipped to revolutionise the way we think of astronomical viewing. 

The Meade LX90 ACF 12" F/10 w/UHTC comes with a 3 Years Limited Warranty.
