Meade LX800 Telescope

Meade LX800 Series

LX800 Series Details

The Meade LX800 range comprises of four telescopes, three reflector and one refractor. The reflectors come in three apertures, 10, 12 and 14 inches with the refractor sporting a 130mm aperture.

The reflectors all sport Meade's Advanced Coma-Free optics and all models come with a precision machined German Equatorial mount.

The mount conveniently comes with internal channeling for cables to prevent the cables catching on the mount as the telescope tracks.

Possibly the most important feature on the LX800 series of telescopes from Meade is the StarLock technology which enables automatic targeting and guiding during imaging. With Meade's LightSwitch technology, StarLock uses two cameras to find and track your object down to an amazing 0.01 arcsecond precision.

The Meade LX800 Series offers the high-end amateur astronomer and astrophotographer a telescope system of amazing performance.
