The f/10 LX200-ACF telescope is the most widely used advanced amateur telescope system on Earth. Each LX200 comes with the Advanced Coma-Free (ACF) optical system. ACF optics achieve aplanatic performance — with a flatter field, reduced astigmatism and eliminated diffractions spikes — equal to Ritchy-Chétien systems, at a fraction of the price. Coupled with Meade’s Ultra- High Transmission Coatings, you have the ultimate in premium optics.

Sitting atop an ultra-stable tripod and mount, the LX200-ACF combines an amazing array of features: Primary Mirror Lock to eliminate focus and mirror shift during long exposures; large, high-quality worm-gear drives in both axes to provide extraordinarily smooth movement, and; Smart Mount and Smart Drive, delivering Permanent Periodic Error Correction (critical for long exposure astrophotography). The drive base of the telescope has multiple input and output ports including an RS-232 PC interface and jacks for a CCD Autoguider and illuminated reticle.

The LX200-ACF also comes with the AutoStar II handbox controller which puts over 140,000 objects at your fingertips and delivers the fastest GoTo performance available. This simple to use handbox provides complete control over every aspect of the telescope’s operation. You can even control the system from an external computer with supplied or third party software.

Other features include a 16 channel GPS receiver for a quick and effortless star alignment, an oversized primary mirror, Series 4000 26mm Plössl eyepiece, and an 8x50 viewfinder with quick release bracket.
