Designed for deep-sky observation with a fast focal ratio for astrophotography/imaging, Meade Instrument's LX70 6" f/5 Reflector Telescope
features a 750mm focal length and a large parabolic mirror for
obtaining detailed images of the moon, clear views of the planets, and
the ability to reach out past our solar system to discover deep-sky
objects. The scope is outfitted with a 2" rack-and-pinion focuser and a
1.25" adapter to increase the size and types of accessories that can be
used with it. Meade includes two Plossl eyepieces to get new users
started; a 9mm that yields 83x power and a 26mm for a 29x magnification.
The scope's f/5 focal ratio is ideal for astrophotography/imaging.
included manual equatorial mount features brass worm-gear drives on
both axes for smooth tracking performance, aluminum setting circles and a
built-in leveling bubble. The large-knob slow-motion control cables
make it easy to track objects even while when wearing gloves. Push-pull
adjustments on both the declination and right ascension axes assist in
fine-tuning the polar alignment; while the built-in latitude scale will
help you dial in your site location quickly. The LX70 mount includes a
Vixen-style dovetail for mounting other optical tubes up to 20 pounds,
an adjustable-height stainless steel tripod, and an accessory tray with
holders for both 1.25" and 2" eyepieces.
