The 8" LX200 Advanced Coma Free optical tube measures an 8" aperture, 2032mm focal length, and a moderate f/10 focal ratio. What sets this optical tube apart from other OTAs is its application of Meade Ultra High Transmission Coatings (UHTC), which significantly improve the light gathering power and transmission.

Meade LX200 f/10 8" ACF Optical Tube Assembly

Meade LX200 f/10 8" Features

  • The Meade 8" LX200 Advanced Coma Free (ACF) optical tube features an 8" aperture, 2032mm focal length, and an f/10 focal ratio.
  • Meade Ultra High Transmission Coatings (UHTC) are used on this optical tube to enhance light transmission, resulting in a resolving power of 0.570 arc-seconds and excellent light gathering power for clear views of celestial objects, including faint deep sky objects like galaxies and nebulae.
  • The moderate f/10 focal ratio provides higher magnification, making planets and smaller angular size objects exceptionally clear.

Advanced Coma Free Design for Pinpoint Sharp Views

The 8" LX200 Advanced Coma Free optical tube boasts a wide 8" aperture, 2032mm focal length, and a moderately fast f/10 focal ratio. What gives this optical tube an enhancement compared to others on the market is its utilization of Meade Ultra High Transmission Coatings (UHTC), which enhance the amount of light gathered and transmitted. This results in a remarkable resolving power of 0.570 arc-seconds and more than adequate light gathering power to generate splendid crisp views of celestial objects including faint deep sky objects like galaxies and nebulae. Since the f/10 is a moderate focal ratio and by nature has a somewhat higher magnification, planets and other objects of smaller angular size are outstanding through this 8" ACF optical tube assembly!
