Product Details


    The Meade 8-inch LX200-ACF f/10 OTA Telescope is designed with Advanced Coma-Free optical system, removing aberrations and producing pinpoint stars! Nearly every observatory reflector in the world uses an aplanatic (coma-free) optical system like the Ritchey Chretien (RC), including NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. Now you can own similar optics to what the professionals use. Check out some of the images that have been taken with this scope down below!

    Features of the Meade 8-inch LX200-ACF f/10 OTA 

    • Primary Mirror Lock locks the mirror in place during long-exposure astrophotography.
    • Oversize Primary Mirror diametersare greater than their listed aperture (e.g., the diameter of the 8-inch LX200-ACF is actually 8.25-inch). This additional 0.25-inch yields a wide, fully illuminated field-of-view.
    • Schott Borofloat Glass Corrector Plate designed with outstanding thermal resistance, high-transparency, and mechanical strength.
    • Losmandy-style Dovetailmachined for lightness and rigidity from aluminum stock and black anodized for tough corrosion-free surfaces.
    • Dust Coverkeeps your telescope free from dust and debris while not in use.

    Refined Optical Design of the Meade LX200-ACF 

    f/10 Advanced Coma-Free Optics

    Building from a classic RC design, Meade has created a new design with the same coma-free pinpoint star images and flatter field that discerning astrophotographers and most professional observatories have come to expect from classic Ritchey Chretien optics.

    Meade's Advanced Coma-Free system also reduces the astigmatism and eliminates diffractions spikes found in classical RCs. The LX200-ACF is the perfect platform for the demanding researcher and imaging enthusiast.

    Meade Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC)

    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.
