Key Features of the LX90 Series Telescopes

  • GPS
    LX90 can do more than track satellites. It talks to them as well. Turn it on and the built-in Sony GPS sensor immediately determines your precise date, time and location. This makes it as simple as possible to determine exactly where you are in relation to the deep, starry sky above. With this information, the EasyAlign feature then takes over and perfectly aligns your system.
  • Easy Align
    LX90s are smart scopes that know the night sky right out of the box. Easy Align picks two alignment stars for you and places them right in your viewfinder. From there, all you'll need to do is make sure they're perfectly centered with some fine-tuning and you're set for a spectacular tour through time in the vast cosmos.
  • AudioStar Controller
    And what would a tour be without a tour guide? Meade's integrated AudioStar is like packing an astronomy tour guide wherever your scope goes. The electronics direct the telescope to any desired celestial object in its database containing over 30,000 objects. You can even start an impromptu star party at any given time with over 4 hours of audio content that can be heard through the built-in speaker. Just plant your rig on the ground and watch it go!
  • Rigid Cast Aluminum Fork Mount
    The Meade LX90 Optical Tube Assembly is mounted on two sturdy fork arms giving you a rock-solid platform for astrophotography. Its 4.875-inch precision worm-gear drives and non-spur gears give you fantastic tracking and pointing accuracy that will never disappoint.
  • ACF Optics
    For the truly discerning astronomer who will not tolerate anything but the very best, Meade’s Advanced Coma-Free (ACF) optical system is the feature you need. ACF takes every feature of the previous SC models and improves on them in every aspect. With its technologically superior optical design, these optics give a flatter field of view with pinpoint images from edge to edge, giving the Ritchey Cretien design a true challenger at a much lower cost. For serious imagers and visual astronomers, if you haven't experienced this optical system you really need to. Once you see the difference you won't want to use anything else.
