Meade 8" ACF Telescope
with LX85 GoTo Mount with AudioStar

The Meade 8" LX85 features an Advanced Coma-Free (ACF) design that provides a crisp, sharp image with no coma distortion--all in a compact Meade blue optical tube assembly. Additionally, the ACF system provides a flatter field of view, making this a great fit for astrophotographers with large sensor cameras.

The coompact 8" f/10 OTA weighs in at just 11.5 pounds. A Vixen-style dovetail bar is attached to the tube for connection to the LX85 mount. UHTC optical coatings provide excellent contrast when viewing celestial objects. The optical system is composed of an oversized, low-expansion borosilicate primary mirror with a Schott Borofloat glass corrector plate. This design produces zero diffraction spikes, as there are no secondary spider vanes (unlike Newtonian reflectors or other designs).

LX85 Equatorial Computerized Mount with AudioStar Controller

The LX85 German equatorial mount is a great goto system. With the push of a few buttons on the AudioStar hand controller, the LX85 can slew to and track over 30,000 objects. The mount has an integer gearing motor drive that allows for long exposure tracking with permanent periodic error correction (PPEC). Also built into the mount is an autoguider port to connect an autoguiding camera.

The easy to use AudioStar hand controller features a built-in speaker that plays 4+ hours of educational content about the objects in its database. The controller plugs into the mount to align the telescope and navigate the night sky.
