Meade LX65 6" ACF OTA Telescope

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!

Features of the Meade LX65 6 ACF OTA Telescope

  • Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC) improves light transmission through the entire light path across the whole visible spectrum.
  • 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.


  • Focuser Mechanism: Single Speed Focuser.
  • Assembled Product Dimensions: 4.8 kg (10 pounds 9 ounces).
  • Viewfinder: Red-Dot Viewfinder.
  • Diagonal: 90-degree star.

Included Technology

Advanced Coma-Free Optics (ACF)

Building from a classic RC design, Meade created a new design with coma-free pinpoint star images and flatter field. The ACF design reduces astigmatism and eliminates dffraction spikes found in classical RCs. TheACF is the perfect plattfor for the demanding researcher and imaging enthusiast with telescopes available in aperture of 6-inches, 8-inches,10-inches, 12-inches, 14-inches, and 16-inches

Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC)

Specialized Multi-layered coating that are preciesely designed to improve the performance of your telescopes optics. You'll see brighter star clusters, more fine details in nebulas, and more surface features on planets with UHTC than without. Averaged over the entire visible spectrum, total light transmission to the focus increases by 15%.
