Product Description

12" Meade LX200 ACF Optical Tube Assembly - with f/10 and UHTC - 1210-60-01

Based on Meade's Advanced Coma Free (ACF) technology, the Meade LX200 ACF 12" produces sharp, clear and bright images. Since ACF optics cause starlight to be concentrated much more precisely, devoid of coma or diffraction spikes, the stars look perfectly rounded and not like the crescent shaped versions you would get with other devices. And that means your coma free telescope can pick up and show you stars and other celestial objects that are fainter and much more distant than ever before. Only telescopes in the Meade LX200 series offer this feature. No other competing manufacturer offering Schmidt-Cassegrain scopes can claim that honor. And that's not the only optical technology innovation used in the 12" Meade LX200 ACF optical tube assembly to make your heavenly viewing an experience to remember.

Taking into account that the human eye has limited capacity to process images beyond wavelengths of 700nm, Meade introduced its innovative Meade Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC™) for lenses used in the Meade LX200 telescopes. This pioneering technology is radically more advanced than conventional Meade coatings - up to 20% more effective. What this has done is to break that 700nm barrier and push it to 750nm, allowing you to  now view crisper, sharper, brighter and clearer cosmos images.  Whether you are a seasoned researcher, or  whether you are an armature galaxy explorer, a Meade coma free telescope has more technology in store to impress you and your star-gazing party guests.

This is an optical tube only and does not include a mount.
