About the Meade LX200-ACF 12" f/10 Optical Tube Assembly...
Features Meade's patented Advanced Coma-Free optical system, oversized primary mirror, and UHTC Coatings for maximum image brightness, sharpness, contrast, and coma-free flat fields.
The revolutionary Advanced Coma-Free (ACF) optical design offers the coma-free pinpoint star images and flatter image fields greatly desired by discerning amateur astronomers, astrophotographers and professional observatories alike. The patented ACF system also reduces the astigmatism and eliminates diffraction spikes found in classical RCs. No competing Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope can make those claims. Features the same outstanding optics as the LX200-ACF in an OTA only, with built in primary mirror lock and a single speed focuser. This Meade 12" LX200-ACF OTA comes with a Losmandy-style dovetail and dust caps.
