Product Details

  • Meade 8" ACF LX90 Telescope

    TheMeade 8-inch ACF LX90 Telescope’s advanced optical design gives a flatter, modern, coma-free field of view with pinpoint images all the way to the edge-of-field. ACF is the perfect solution for the serious astro-imager or visual astronomer looking for budget-friendly, observatory-class optics.

    TheLX90's Advanced Coma-Free (ACF) optical system creates a flatter field, reduces blurs and eliminates diffraction spikes, bringing the highest level of optical performance at an affordable price to both advanced and amateur astronomers. In addition to its premium optics, the LX90 also comes equipped with the AudioStar computer system withAstronomer Inside Technology. Find and track over 30,000 celestial objects! In addition, experience a guided tour as you listen to audio content through its built-in speaker.

    KEY FEATURES

    • GPS - Built-in Sony GPS sensor determines your precise date, time and location for precise alignment.
    • 8X50 Viewfinder - Quickly and easily locate and center deep-sky objects.
    • AudioStar Controller - Controls the telescope to find and track over 30,000 celestial objects and an audio guide of astronomical objects including planets, stars, constellations, clusters, nebula, galaxies and much more!
    • Meade Ultra-High Transmission Coatings - Increases total light transmission and image brightness by nearly 20% over Meade's standard coatings. Objects such as stars, galaxies, and nebulae will appear significantly brighter.
    • Over-sized Primary Mirror - The primary mirror is larger in diameter than its listed aperture. This additional 1/4-inch yields a wider, fully illuminated field-of-view, and allows you to see the light other telescopes leave behind.
    • Smart Drive - Meade AudioStar provides Periodic Error Correction (in polar mode). Over the course of one or more training periods, your LX90 will minimize guiding corrections during long-exposure astrophotography.
    • Auto-Align - Picks two alignment stars for you and places them directly in your telescope’s viewfinder, which then allows you to center them and fine-tune your alignment.
    • Rigid Cast Aluminum Fork Mount - The mount’s sturdy fork arms give the LX90’s Optical Tube Assembly a solid platform for Astrophotography.

    Meade AC Adapter for Meade Telescopes

    The Meade AC adapter converts 110V AC power to 12V DC and puts out approximately 5 amps, more than enough to run any of the Meade LX90, ETX, LX200-ACF or LXD75 telescopes! It also powers the Meade LX400-ACF telescopes with its built-in dew heater running on high!

    On one end of the transformer, there is an 8-foot cord that plugs into the drive base of the telescope, and the other end runs 6 feet from the AC converter box to the outlet.

    The Meade AC Adapter works with all standard US grounded electrical services.
