MEADE • 16 " LightBridge Truss-Tube Dobsonian Telescope • 1645-05-03
When it comes to portable and quality telescopes, Meade, one of the most famous telescope manufacturers has constructed their brilliant 16” Lightbridge Dobsonian Telescope to fit this standard. Over the years, Meade has made a great effort into satisfying their customers in many different fields. The 16” Lightbridge is excellent in portability mainly because of the Steel RA Roller at its bottom which allows the user to transport the scope very easily and quickly and therefore get ready for stargazing before it gets too dark. Meade also incorporated their special and secret aluminum coatings and a Crayford focuser to get the user’s field of view to the focus they need and prefer. The 16” Lightbridge Dobsonian telescope is a great choice for amateur astronomers who want a professional dobsonian with easy maintenance. Many people may wonder what makes the 16” Lightbridge Dobsonian mainly different. A popular feature of Meade products is ease of use, and this is more noticeable, enhanced and improved as years go by. As with most people, there is no question that astronomers want to spend the majority of their time observing, not setting up their scope. With this Lightbridge, you can now get this task down before sundown in as easy as 1-2-3!
Meade always likes to stand out and be different in the astronomy optics market, and they do this by monitoring their products reviews, compliments, and criticisms. As years pass by, they’re constantly adjusting their products to fit the needs and wants of their customers. The 16” Lightbridge Dobsonian telescope is no exception. It is obvious that most astronomers like flexibility when focusing and assistance when finding their desired coordinates in the sky. Taking this input, Meade has decided to implement a Crayford focuser (which is very famous for focusing flexibility) and a Four-Reticle Red Dot Finder for coordinate assistance. Not only this, Meade has taken it a step forward by developing a technique to increase the shelf life of their optics. With a primary mirror cooling fan, thermal equilibrium is achieved and optics won’t overheat. What good is a telescope without excellent accessories right? Meade definitely hasn’t forgotten that. The 16” Lightbridge has a 26mm QX Wide 2” sized eyepieces included with it with a 70° field of view apparent. Just another example of Meade going beyond their customer’s expectations! Meade’s 16” Lightbridge Dobsonian telescope is quite the dobsonian dream! High quality accessories, optic care, portability, and powerful, what else is needed!
