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. EasyAlign™ then uses this info to align your scope for a tour of the most spectacular sights in the universe.
  • 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. Just center them to fine tune your alignment and the wonders of the universe are at your fingertips.
  • Rigid Cast Aluminum Fork Mount
    The Meade LX90’s Optical Tube Assembly is mounted on two sturdy fork arms giving you a rock solid platform for astrophotography. 4.875-inch precision worm-gear drives, not spur gears, give you the ultimate in tracking and pointing accuracy
  • ACF Optics
    For the truly discerning astronomer who will not tolerate anything but the very best, there is Meade’s Advanced Coma-Free (ACF) optical system. ACF takes all of the features of our SC models and then ups the ante. With it's technologically superior optical design, ACF gives a flatter, coma-free field of view with pinpoint images all the way to the edge of the field, rivaling RitcheyCrétien performance at a fraction of the cost. ACF is the perfect solution for the serious astroimager or visual astronomer looking for observatory-class optics.
