LX85 5" Refractor

The telescope arrived on time in good shape. As it has rained or cloudy all except one night, i have not had enough time to put it through its paces. The short time i did get to try it performed beautifully. Color correction was excellent. Focus was very smooth. I would recommend this instrument to anyone. Price was right. Service was great and Mead came up with a winner

This is a good quality telescope and I especially like that it is set up for either 1 1/4” or 2” eyepieces...
