Product Details


    Meade's LX850 16-inch Advanced Coma-Free (ACF) optical tube features a fast f/8 design making it an optimal choice for astrophotographers needing a large aperture system. Specialized baffling provides high-contrast images that are crisp from edge to edge. 

    Meade's proprietary ACF optical design goes a step beyond traditional Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes by shortening the focal length and improving image clarity, color and contrast. Advanced Coma-Free optics display stars crisp and clear throughout the image circle.

    • Carefully designed internal baffling maximizes light transmission for optimal contrast and brightness.
    • An internal Crayford-style focusing system moves the primary mirror with zero backlash or image shift and has a 7:1 focusing speed ratio which smooth and precise.
    • Signature blue matte pebble finish on the optical tube is both durable and beautiful.
