Meade's f/10 LX90 ACF is a favorite of astronomers making the jump to their first, serious, large aperture telescope.

Meade's 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. This system also reduces the astigmatism and eliminates the diffraction spikes found in classical Ritchey-Chrétien designs. Each LX90 ACF is coated with Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC) for maximum image brightness and contrast.

Electronics include the advanced Meade AudioStar™ computer system with over 30,000 object library, multiple guided tours, High Precision Pointing capability, and Meade SmartDrive with Permanent Periodic Error Correction. Also included is the 16 channel GPS receiver for precise, quick star alignment.

All LX90 models feature the solid and stable LX90 aluminum double fork mount, with fast slew speed adjustable from 1 to 7 degrees per second. Fine slewing and photographic guiding speeds can be adjusted from .01x to 1x sidereal in one one-hundredth increments. The mount also has mechanical locks in both axis allowing adjustment even without power.

The LX90 comes fully equipped with a heavy duty height adjustable Meade Field Tripod, 1.25" diagonal prism, Series 4000 26mm 5-Element Plössl eyepiece, and an 8x50 optical viewfinder with quick release bracket.

The LX90 ACF comes in 8", 10", and 12" aperture sizes.
