Used Meade 14" F/8 LX600-ACF with Starlock (No Tripod) - UT-11541 - SOLD

The science behind the Meade f/8 optical tube starts with their patented ACF optics. Improving upon the original Schmidt Cassegrain design, Meade's ACF optics deliver the ultimate in clarity, contrast and a flat field of view. Natural coma and optical aberrations are eliminated allowing for pin point round stars to the edge of the field. These qualities make Meade ACF optical tubes excellent imaging instruments. However, by pairing this revolution in optical design with their Ultra High Transmission Coatings (UHTC), light transmission and detail are greatly increased allowing you visually discern fainter objects than ever before - an observer's dream! This OTA is built for speed too. Traditional Schmidt Cassegrains would typically have a field stop of f/10, at only f/8 your exposure times are exponentially decreased allowing you to get more imaging in each night.

And that's just the beginning. This is the LX600, the newest and finest in Meade's optical engineering and telescope design, taking your visual and optical astronomy to the next level! This fast f/8 Advanced Coma Free optical system produces a wider, flatter field with no coma for pinpoint stars out to the edge of larger imaging sensors and extreme wide angle eyepieces. Furthermore, this high-value package includes StarLock for full time guiding at one arc second precision and LightSwitch style auto-alignment, Crayford style zero shift focuser with reduction, AutoStar II GOTO system with over 145,000 object library, and much more. And that's not all- this 14" LX600 has 14" diameter f/8 ACF optics (focal length 2845mm) and Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC) for maximum image brightness and contrast. The redesigned mirror mounting system achieves zero image shift and includes an internal Crayford style focuser with two speed, 7:1 reduction control that allows for quick and easy adjustments.
