About the Meade LX200-ACF 8" 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. Focal Length of 2000mm, Focal Ratio of f/10.
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 for added image stability. The Meade 8" f/10 LX200 ACF OTA includes a Losmandy dovetail and dust covers.
