Product Description

This is a discontinued item. We recommend the LX90ACF UHTC 8" as a replacement.

The Meade 8" LX90-ACF series yields the same optical brilliance as the LX90-ACF flagships, in a package providing a better value for those whom are primarily observers rather than astrophotographers.  The quality, workmanship, design and features offered will satisfy novices and experienced professionals alike.  Meade combines high quality optics, stable double fork mounting, computerized hand control and streamlined appearance in a single unit.

Meade's list of technology within the 8" LX90-ACF is a long and exhaustive one indeed.  A rigid mount and beefy tripod.  An oversized primary mirror and truly diffraction limited optics.  The very finest of simple, accurate GPS-enabled alignment.

The 8" LX90-ACF's standard-equipment Autostar computer controller connects to the telescope's control panel and permits viewing and tracking of the incredible amount of 30,223 database objects.  That's 50 objects in the solar system, 8 major planets from Mercury to Pluto, the Moon, 26 asteroids & 15 comets.  An apparent endless supply of galaxies, diffuse nebulae, planetary nebulae and star clusters include the complete Messier, Caldwell, IC, and NGC catalogs.  You'll also enjoy looking at 50 Earth satellites including the International Space Station and Hubble telescope!

Sony® GPS Sensor
The Sony® GPS sensor within the LX90-ACF immediately & precisely determines date, time & location parameters
AutoAlign™
AutoAlign™ picks two failproof alignment stars for you and places them right in your viewfinder-just center them to fine tune your alignment and the universe is at your fingertips!
SmartDrive™
The AutoStar® provides Periodic Error Correction in polar mode, minimizing guiding corrections during long exposure astrophotography.
Inspected Exclusively in Irvine, California
Hand matched diffraction-limited Schmidt-Cassegrain optical system individually inspected at Meade's Irvine, California facility
Oversized Primary Mirror
Primary mirror diameter larger than listed aperture, yielding wider & fully illuminated viewing field
Enormous 8" aperture penetrates deep into space for observations of intricate detail
GO TO capacity for over 30,000 celestial objects with maximum slew speed of 7.0° per second
Autostar controller connects into the telescope control panel
Optional #909 Accessory Port Module includes auxiliary connectors for using illuminated reticle eyepieces, the #1206 Electric Focuser or a CCD autoguider
UHTC Ultra-High Transmission Coatings
UHTC Ultra High Transmission Coatings are an important feature to optimize the performance of your Meade telescope.  Technologies developed at the Meade Irvine coatings facility have optimized the visual and photographic performance of Meade telescopes.  The UHTC coatings, employed upon all optical surfaces, result in a 20% decrease in light loss and a dramatic enhancement in detail of deep space objects.
