Meade MAX 20 Details

The Meade Max 20 Telescope is aimed at the high-end telescopic market. The scope has a MSRP of $34,999 and this is reflected in the build of not only the optic tube but the incredible robotic German equatorial mount.

The precision built mount features a 16 channel GPS, slew speeds of 0.01x sidereal, multiple tracking rates, including sidereal and lunar plus many customised options.

Whilst the UHTC 20 inch optical tube sports a 4064mm focal length and f/8 focal ratio. It also has Meade's usual Advanced Coma Free design.
