Product Details

  •  

    The Meade LX-600 Telescope is a simple to operate, portable package that makes astrophotography as easy as focusing your camera and opening the shutter. The exceptional optical system and integrated collection of features and technology found in Meade’s LX-600 is truly unparalleled.

    The LX600 integrates a unique star tracking and object finding system into the telescope mount. This integration allows the telescope to center your target perfectly in the field of view. Once centered, the star tracking system communicates directly with the motor drives to automatically assure your scope stays locked onto its target with arcsecond precision. The automated optical tracking system delivers long-exposure guiding with pinpoint stars on astro-images despite misalignments, atmospheric refraction, periodic or other mechanical errors. 

    Key Features of the Meade 14-inch LX600-ACF

    • Internal Crayford-style 7:1 Focuser- The mirror mounting system achieves zero-image shift, eliminating the need for a mirror lock and integrates a two-speed micro-focuser for quick and easy adjustments.
    • Solid Fork Mount w/ Heavy Duty 5.75-inch Gears- Large, high-quality worm-gear drives in both axes provide smooth movements with low periodic error, providing the freedom to go horizon to horizon without any meridian flip.
    • Alt-Az Mode-Makes for the best visual and short exposure experience possible. The LX600 performs LightSwitch fully-automated self-alignment.
    • StarLock Technology- Centers your target in the eyepiece and track with arcsecond accuracy so you can concentrate on the beautiful, wide fields of pinpoint stars created by the superb f/8 ACF optical system.
    • AutoStar II GoTo System-Puts over 140,000 objects at your fingertips and delivers the fastest GoTo performance available.
