LX600 16" ACF
As part of Meade’s 40th anniversary, we have fundamentally re designed virtually our entire line of
medium to high-end telescopes. As part of that, we’re proud to announce the latest in a long list of
industry leading developments, the new LX600 with StarLock.
Available in 10″, 12 ″, 14 ″ and 16 ″ apertures, we started with the venerable LX200 ACF, added
our new f/8 ACF optical system developed for the LX800, which includes our patent-pending internal Crayford-style, zero image-shift, 7:1 dual speed focuser. We then added StarLock for full-time automatic auto-guiding, ultra-high precision pointing and LightSwitch-style automatic alignments.
All LX600-ACF Advanced Coma-Free Telescopes include StarLock dual imager integrated full-time autoguider, Ultra Precision Pointing and Assisted Drift Alignment, GPS Receiver, Oversized Low-Expansion Borsilicate Primary Mirror, Schott® Borofloat® Glass Corrector Plate, Diffraction Limited Optics, Internal Crayford-style Focusing system with 7:1 focus control, OTA Tube Balance Weight System, AutoStar II handbox with 145,000 object library, Smart Drive with Permanent Periodic Error Correction (PPEC), Patented Level North Technology (LNT) Alignment System, 8x50 Viewfinder, AutoStar Suite Software.
The LX600 ACF 16" comes with the MAX tripod, 2" mirror diagonal with UHTC, zero image-shift microfocuser, universal AC adapter and 26mm Series 4000 Super Plossl Eyepiece.
