About the Meade LX200-ACF 16" f/10 Optical Tube Assembly...
Features Meade's patented Advanced Coma-Free optical system, oversized primary mirror, cooling fans, 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 RC's. 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, cooling fans, and a single speed focuser. This professional-style 16" LX200 ACF OTA comes with a Losmandy dovetail and dust covers; choose other accessories, such as finder, diagonal, or a camera as you see fit.
