The LX200™ with ACF™ Optics






The LX200™ with ACF™ Optics The most widely used, research-grade, telescope system.

Meade's LX200-ACF brings Advanced Coma-Free (ACF) optics within reach of aspiring astronomers everywhere. Nearly every observatory reflector in the world uses an aplanatic (coma-free) optical system like the Ritchey-Chrétien (RC), including NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. Now you can own similar optics to what the professionals use. The LX200-ACF includes all the field-proven features of the LX200 including GPS, Primary Mirror Lock, Oversized Primary Mirror, SmartDrive™, Smart Mount™, AutoStar® II and more. The new LX200-ACF. It's the biggest news in astronomy since, well, the LX200. ADVANCED COMA-FREE OPTICS

The LX200-ACF comes in a complete line of OTA apertures, from 8-inch to 16-inch. All sizes come with the Advanced Coma-Free (ACF) optical systems. The Advanced Coma-Free optical system has brought the highest level of optical performance well within the reach of most amateurs. Using the Meade exclusive design, ACF optics achieve aplanatic performance — with a flatter field, reduced astigmatism and eliminated diffractions spikes — equal to Ritchy-Chétien systems, at a fraction of the price. Coupled with Meade’s Ultra- High Transmission Coatings (standard on all LX200-ACF systems), you have the ultimate in premium optics. HIGH-END FEATURES

Sitting atop an ultra-stable tripod and mount, the LX200-ACF combines an amazing array of features: Primary Mirror Lock to eliminate focus and mirror shift during long exposures; large, high-quality worm-gear drives in both axes to provide extraordinarily smooth movement, and; Smart Mount and Smart Drive, delivering Permanent Periodic Error Correction (critical for long exposure astrophotography).

The LX200-ACF also comes with the AutoStar II handbox controller which puts over 140,000 objects at your fingertips and delivers the fastest GoTo performance available. This simple to use handbox provides complete control over every aspect of the telescope’s operation. You can even control the system from an external computer with supplied or third party software. THE BENCHMARK

Meade’s LX200 is the most widely used advanced amateur telescope on Earth. And for good reason. It combines the most sophisticated optical system available with rock-solid mechanical and electronic elements to create the most versatile astronomical system available.
