Product Details

  • The Meade LX65 6-inch ACF OTA Telescope is engineered with an Advanced Coma-Free (ACF) catadioptric-variant optical path to reduce color fringing and off-axis comas. Resolve dim deep-sky objects and easily split binary stars with tack-sharp clarity! 

    Its 6-inch (150 mm) aperture gathers enough light for viewing within the solar system as well as deep-sky objects without adding excessive weight and bulk, making it a perfect travel scope!

    • Vixen-style dovetail rail that makes it compatible with a wide variety of Alt-Azimuth, equatorial, and GoTo mounts. 
    • Fully multi-coated optics improve image brightness and minimizes light loss and diffraction.
