Highlights of the Meade LX90 UHTC Telescope
GPS: The Meade LX90 can do more than track satellites. It talks to them as well. Turn it on and the built-in Sony GPS sensor immediately determines your precise date, time and location. Meade's AutoAlign technology then uses this info to align your scope for a tour of the most spectacular sights in the universe.
Easy Align: Meade LX90s are smart scopes that know the night sky right out of the box. Easy Align picks two alignment stars for you and places them right in your telescope's viewfinder. Center these two stars to fine-tune your alignment and the wonders of the universe will be at your fingertips.
Oversized Primary Mirror: Only Meade manufactures their primary mirrors in diameters larger than their listed aperture (e.g. the diameter of the 8" LX90's primary mirror is actually 8.25"). This additional 1/4" yields a wider, fully illuminated field-of-view, and allows you to see the light other telescopes leave behind.
8 X 50 Viewfinder: With the 8x50 finderscope, you can quickly and easily locate and center deep sky objects.
Slew Speed: The Meade LX90 telescope can slew (move) from star to star at 7 degrees per second. That is more than twice as fast as the competition. This means that over the course of an evening, a Meade LX90 will show you two to three times more objects.
Rigid Cast Aluminum Fork Mount: The Meade LX90's Optical Tube Assembly, or OTA, is mounted on two sturdy fork arms, giving you a rock solid platform for astrophotography.
LX200 Series Tripod: The LX90 comes standard with the same sturdy, adjustable field tripod as the more expensive Meade LX200 series telescope.
AutoStar Controller: Meade's AutoStar controller can be updated free at meade.com as new software releases occur. Keep your AutoStar up-to-date, and your LX90 will grow with you for years to come.
