Meade LX200ACF 10" UHTC OTA

£2,040.00

Quick Overview

Meade LX200ACF Advanced Coma Free Optical Tubes offer superb optics in a portable package and are available to attach to your choice of mounting.

When reviewing Meade's LX400-ACF Advanced Coma Free, Sky and Telescope magazine said, "It does indeed perform like a Ritchey-Chrétien. The difference between the off-axis images compared to a Schmidt-Cassegrain was dramatic to say the least."

f/10 Advanced Coma-Free Optics: Building from a classic RC design, Meade has created a new design with the same coma-free pinpoint star images and flatter field that discerning astrophotographers and most professional observatories have come to expect from classic Ritchey-Chrétien optics. Meade's Advanced Coma-Free system also reduces the astigmatism and eliminates diffractions spikes found in classical RCs. The LX200-ACF is the perfect platform for the demanding researcher and imaging enthusiast.

Meade Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC™) increases total light transmission and image brightness by nearly 20% over Meade's standard coatings. Objects such as stars, galaxies and nebulae will appear significantly brighter.

Primary Mirror Lock locks the mirror in place during long-exposure astrophotography.

Oversize Primary Mirror diameters are greater than their listed aperture (e.g., the diameter of the 8" LX200-ACF is actually 8.25"). This additional 1/4" yields a wide, fully illuminated field-of-view.
