The Meade Instruments LX85 127mm f/6 Achro Refractor Telescope
utilizes an air-spaced achromatic doublet lens system to produce bright
and clear views of the moon, planets, and deep-sky objects.
is built to deliver virtually aberration-free images with its
air-spaced doublet lens design and anti-reflection fully multi-coated
optics. The resulting color-accurate views are crisp and sharp across
the entire field of view. The large 127mm aperture produces detailed
views of the moon, reveals planetary features that smaller apertures
cannot resolve, and allows deep-sky objects like nebulae and galaxies to
be seen. Added to this already impressive performance is a sturdy
rack-and-pinion focuser that is outfitted with a 2" holder for eyepieces
This version of the LX85 achro refractor is
offered here without a mount or tripod for users who already have a
reliable support system and are looking to upgrade their OTA or add
another to their astronomy arsenal. To make it compatible with the
widest variety of mount heads, the OTA comes outfitted with a
Vixen-style dovetail rail. A 1.25" reducer adapter is provided to use
smaller eyepieces and accessories. To help get new users started, Meade
includes a 2" diagonal and two eyepieces that produce low and high
magnifications, along with an 8x50 finderscope.
