Product Details

  • The Meade 6” f/10 LX85 ACF optical tube assembly hosts a number of high end features, all in a very compact package. The Advanced Coma Free (ACF) design provides a tack sharp image with no coma distortion, inherent in some other designs. The ACF system also provides for an extremely flat field of view, perfect for astro-imagers with larger camera sensors.

    Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC) provide beautifully bright images of deep-sky objects, with excellent contrast of surface features found on the moon and planets. The optics feature an oversized low-expansion Borosilicate primary mirror and Schott® Borofloat® glass corrector plate. The corrector plate produces zero diffraction spikes because there are no secondary spider vanes, like found on some other designs such as Newtonian reflectors or Ritchey-Chretiens.

    Designed and Manufactured in North America, and the ACF primary, secondary and corrector plate glass blanks are manufactured in the USA exclusively for Meade.

    The long 1524mm focal length is housed in a tube that is less than 17” long, and weighs just 9.9 lbs. A Vixen-style dovetail rail is attached to the bottom of the telescope optical tube, meaning it can be attached to any compatible Alt-Az or EQ mount that uses a Vixen-style cradle.
