Meade LXD 75 Details

The Meade LXD75 series offers a wide range of types of telescopes including Achromatic Refractor, and Schmidt-Newtonian types. Here's a full list of the models available.

  • N-6 AT 6 inch Newtonian
  • SN-6 AT 6 inch Schmidt-Newtonian
  • SN-8 AT 8 inch Schmidt-Newtonian
  • SN-10 AT 10 inch Schmidt-Newtonian
  • ACF-8 AT 8 inch ACF
  • AR-5 AT 5 inch Achromatic Refractor
  • AR-6 AT 6 inch Achromatic Refractor

The optics are mounted in precision-machined aluminum cells and encased in sturdy steel tubes. The tubes are closed to prevent image distortion by air currents and to help keep the optics clean.

In the Schmidt-Newtonian and ACF models, there are white water glass corrector lenses to increase light transmission by over 10%.

All models come with a sturdy German equatorial mount using heavy-duty castings and stainless steel ball bearings for precise alignment of the telescope.
