The Meade 10” Lightbridge is a true astronomical masterpiece. This dobsonian optical tube has abundance of high quality optics to enhance the results. It doesn’t stop there however, portability is also an excellence in this scope! Equipped with Steel RA Roller Bearings, Meade knows how important portability is when observing in remote areas. It reduces the amount of time for set-up, takes up less space, and makes packing up and leaving the stargazing area less stressful without the use of those awful flashlights. One great feature of the Meade 10” Lightbridge is that portability doesn’t sacrifice quality! Despite the fact that this dobsonian telescope is so portable, this item has unique accessories built in. With Meade Optical aluminum coatings supplied of magnesium fluoride over the corrected lenses for outstanding reflectivity performance and a 2” Crayford-Style Machined Aluminum 1.25” Adapter Focuser, the Meade 10” Lightbridge Dobsonian Telescope is a must have for the astronomer looking to upgrade! Taking out a scope you just bought for the first time can be harsh to assemble. You may not be sure how to operate the scope on the mount, how to mount the scope, or how to level the tripod accurately and it can be frustrating at times. Meade has made precise efforts in addressing this exact problem. In addition to being a king of portability, the Lightbridge 10” Dobsonian comes as a simple and part limited assembly. Therefore not only is it portable, but it is so compact that the average stargazer can take it with them in their car without hesitation.
Now of course, an easy process of setting up the scope is only half the picture and satisfaction. Scope performance is the other. With Meade’s famous aluminum magnesium-flouride coatings and a smooth and precise Crayford Focuser, the Dobsonian 10” Lightbridge has a magnificent and efficient light reflectivity management system to ensure the maximum amount of light is reflected and passed on to the user’s eye. To point the telescope to the proper point of the sky, an advanced Four-Reticle Red Dot Viewfinder is included for assistance. Meade has also ensured that the optics are in good hands while in use. This is why the 10” Lightbridge also comes equipped with a primary mirror cooling fan built in! Bringing a telescope to thermal equilibrium is so important not only because it keeps them working properly, but it prolongs performance longer. Accessories always add pleasure, satisfaction, and features to a user’s purchase. The Meade 10” Lightbridge comes with a 26mm QX Wide angle 2” barrel eyepiece with a 70° apparent field of view. Just gain even more! With all this said, it seems the Meade 10” Lightbridge is one might scope! With portability, great optics, great care, great accessories and finally, a great sky, this brilliant Dobsonian will certainly impress the astronomer to the point where their friends must have one too! Again, this Dobsonian is an absolute must have!
