Product Details

  • The Meade LX85 115 mm Triplet APO Refractor's optical design yields high-resolution images with great color-correction, contrast, and sharpness! This refractor’s optics coupled with a rigid, yet portable, GoTo German Equatorial Mount will have astro-imagers of all levels capturing stunning views!

    This Triplet Apochromatic Refractor’s 3-element optics use the highest grade, extra-low dispersion optical glass, virtually eliminating false color, producing optimal color correction, contrast, and sharpness. In addition to top-of-the-line optics, the LX85 115 mm APO’S sturdy GoTo Mount will handle up to 33 pounds of observing equipment, including an array of different optical tubes, while the sturdy build and low-cog servo motors ensure smooth tracking performance. In addition to handling slight load imbalances, this stable mount’s built-in integer gearing motor drive allows you to track through long exposures using the Smart Drive feature to record Permanent Periodic Error Correction (PPEC).

    With the touch of a button, gain access to over 30,000 celestial objects and over four hours of educational content with the included AudioStar hand controller and AudioStar’s Astronomer Inside technology.
