brings to market a sophisticated catadioptric optical design favored by
research facilities worldwide, but at a price that many enthusiasts can
afford. Most professional applications are either this style of
telescope or a gargantuan apochromatic refractor. Meade's 8.0"
LX200-ACF with UHTC multicoatings provides a deep space aperture in a

This is a premium 8" catadioptric scope in a robust
twin-fork altazimuth mount meant for delightful observing, but is easily
adapted to extended astrophotography by using either Meade's Deep Sky
Imager (which eliminates field rotation via software), Field
De-Rotator, or #07002 Equatorial Wedge. Power is supplied by 8 "C"
batteries, but via optional accessories you can also adapt to an AC wall
unit or a vehicle's cigarette lighter (which can operate in the field off of a Celestron Power Tank).

electric focuser as standard equipment, and use a Series 4000 Super
Plössl eyepiece instead of the Series 5000 version.
