The Meade LX65 8" ACF is the next in Meade's continuing line-up of classical Cassegrain telescopes - this time with the ability to mount a second telescope or additional accessory in line with the main instrument. The LX65 mount feature dual internal and external Vixen-profile saddle plates, which allow a huge range of potential configurations of telescopes to be mounted side-by-side.

The Goto system for this mount is the tried and tested Meade Audiostar system, with unique audio commentary on hundreds of objects. The system will also talk you through the alignment and setup process of the mount, which beginners find invaluable.

The telescope itself is a powerful Schmidt-Cassegrain the instrument, which features Meade's Advanced Coma Free optics, ensuring a flat field edge-to-edge, with none of the traditional coma which ordinary Schmidts suffer from.
