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.
