Meade’s LightBridge™ Series continues its legacy of fine Dobsonian telescopes with their LightBridge™ Plus Series of Telescopes. These telescopes have a large light-gathering capability to provide bright, clear images when viewing the fainter deep-space objects such as galaxies, nebulae, but also the planets. The LightBridge™ Plus Telescopes have a modern, sleek design. For added user convenience, their design incorporates an assembly process that requires no tools to accomplish. If you’ve ever wanted a large aperture telescope but were unable to have the ability to move it around on your own, Meade’s LightBridge™ Plus Telescopes now make this practical. No more struggling with heavy bulky telescope equipment.

This 12" (304 mm) aperture open truss design allows for increased portability over standard solid-tube designs and is able to provide easy setup and teardown for a telescope of this size and performance. In addition, this 12" (304 mm) aperture LightBridge™ Plus telescope from Meade has a focal length of 1,524 mm, or an f/5 focal ratio, to give you those larger aerial image sizes you have been wanting. Your favorite set of eyepieces working with that focal length will provide great visual enjoyment of celestial objects. But this scope includes a 26 mm eyepiece too.

The redesigned Dobsonian base has a no-tool assembly and provides improved stability. Just some of the features included in this premium design are: roller bearings, a hand-adjustable variable tension brake for smooth and stable movement, and a mounted eyepiece holder that can carry (1) 2” and (3) 1.25” eyepieces for added convenience. The LightBridge™ Plus Series Telescopes feature an upgraded 2”, 2-speed Rack and Pinion Focuser. This Rack & Pinion design focuser includes a 10:1 fine focus knob for precise focusing and includes a Vernier scale with millimeter markings on the drawtube to help you set the focusing with better accuracy. You can quickly repeat settings for focus when you change eyepieces and learn their specific focal settings.

Included with the Meade 12" LightBridge™ Plus Telescope is a 3-element, fully multi-coated 2” barrel, Series 4000 26 mm Eyepiece - providing a 56 degree apparent field of view - and an aluminum Red-Dot Viewfinder. Also included is Meade’s AutoStar Suite Astronomer Edition for your PC - displaying more than 15,000 celestial wonders. This easy to use software allows you to view the night sky, constellations, planet positions and has many more features, from any location you choose to set up.

The LightBridge™ Plus 12" Dobsonian telescope provides high-quality Meade optics, ultra-portability, and remarkable performance for one affordable price. Get the aperture you’ve always wanted and start exploring the wonders of a whole new universe with Meade’s 12" LightBridge™ Plus Telescope.
