The patented Meade Advanced Coma-Free (ACF™) optical design offers coma-free pinpoint star images and flatter image fields greatly desired by discerning amateur astronomers, astrophotographers and professional observatories alike. This system also reduces astigmatism and eliminates diffraction spikes. Meade’s LX90 also features Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC™). UHTC™ are specialized multi-layered coatings that are precisely designed to improve the performance of your telescope’s optics. You’ll see brighter star clusters, more fine detail in nebulae, and additional surface features on planets. Averaged over the entire visible spectrum, total light transmission to the focus increases by 15%.

LX90-ACF 8 Inch electronics include: Meade’s advanced AudioStar™ computer system with a 30,000+ object-library, multiple guided tours, High Precision Pointing capability, and Meade’s SmartDrive™ with Permanent Periodic Error Correction. Precise and quick star alignment is done near effortlessly with an incorporated 16-channel genuine Sony GPS receiver.

All LX90 models feature a solid and stable aluminum double-fork mount with fast slew speed adjustable from 1.5° to 6.5°/second. Mount and electronics are internally powered by (8) x C-cell (user-supplied) batteries, which will typically operate the telescope for a generous 60 hours (optional Meade Universal AC Adapter can be used). The mount also has mechanical locks and slow motion manual controls in both axis if no power is available.

With high-quality features and performance, Meade’s LX90 ACF™ is a staple for your astronomy ventures. Make it your time to own The Legend.
