Meade LX200

The LX200™ with ACF™ Optics

The most widely used, research-grade, telescope system.

Meade's LX200-ACF brings Advanced Coma-Free (ACF) optics within reach of aspiring astronomers everywhere. Nearly every observatory reflector in the world uses an aplanatic (coma-free) optical system like the Ritchey-Chrétien (RC), including NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. Now you can own similar optics to what the professionals use. The LX200-ACF includes all the field-proven features of the LX200 including GPS, Primary Mirror Lock, Oversized Primary Mirror, SmartDrive™, Smart Mount™, AutoStar® II and more. The new LX200-ACF. It's the biggest news in astronomy since, well, the LX200.

  1. X-Wedge Aluminum Wedge for 8 10 12 14 LX200 and LX600

    X-Wedge Aluminum Wedge for 8 10 12 14 LX200 and LX600

    The Meade X-Wedge Aluminum Wedge for 8 10 12 14 LX200 and LX600 is the latest and greatest in the long line of equatorial wedges that Meade has produced for their fork-mounted instruments. Designed to enable long exposure astrophotography and imaging with Meade LX200 and LX600 models. This very rugged and heavy duty wedge allows for safe and rigid mounting with excellent vibration damping charecteristics for the beffier Meade SC and ACF telescopes. The Meade X-Wedge is a precision CNC machined affair which is constructed from ultra-stiff aircraft-grade aluminum with silky-smooth, incredibly fine altitude and azimuth adjustments. Meade quote the X-Wedge is "30% more stable than competing equatorial wedges, the X-Wedge sets a new standard for equatorial stability while allowing for tracking from horizon to horizon without need of any meridian flip such as required by German Equatorial Mounts."

  3. Meade 10"ACF LX200 OTA front

    Meade LX200ACF 10" UHTC OTA

    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. Learn More
