Engineered for impressive performance and copious light gathering ability, the massive LX200-ACF UHTC 16" f/10 Catadioptric Telescope represents the largest aperture in Meade Instruments's LX line. It combines an oversized primary mirror with multiple technologies to produce distortion-free high-contrast images with true color rendition across the entire flat field of view with an impressive Dawes' resolution of just 0.285 arcsec. The scope's performance begins with the aplanatic Advanced Coma-Free (ACF) optical system which produces a flat field of view with reduced astigmatism and zero diffraction. A low-expansion borosilicate primary mirror further reduces distortion due to temperature fluctuation, and the Schott Borofloat glass corrector plate aligns the light waves to correct spherical and chromatic aberrations. Meade then fully multi-coats all optical surfaces with their proprietary Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UTHC) which increase light transmission, further improve color fidelity, and boost contrast. For long-exposure astrophotography or long-duration observation sessions, the LX200 boasts a primary mirror lock to completely cancel any residual image shift due to mirror movement.

This version of the LX200 is offered here without any accessories, mount, or tripod for those who have all their gear and just want to upgrade their OTA. This large OTA weighs in at a substantial 67 pounds by itself, so make sure the mount head and tripod it gets put on can handle it in addition to the weight of any accessories. To ensure a rock-solid connection to your mount it is outfitted with the larger Losmandy-style dovetail plate.
