LX200GPS SMT 12 inch (f10) Schmidt-Cassegrain with UHTC
LX200GPS SMT 12 inch (f10) Schmidt-Cassegrain with UHTC

12 inch LX200GPS-SMT (f10) Schmidt-Cassegrain with UHTC

1. Meade Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC™) Group increases total light transmission and image brightness by nearly 20% over Meade’s standard coatings. Objects such as stars, galaxies and nebulae will appear significantly brighter. MEADE EXCLUSIVE

2. State-of-the-Art Optical System Water white glass is standard equipment in all 12" Schmidt-Cassegrain corrector lenses. Water white glass delivers an increase of light transmission in excess of 10% as compared to competing Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes using green soda lime glass. MEADE EXCLUSIVE

3. Zero Image-Shift Microfocuser allows you to obtain precise image focus with no image movement. MEADE EXCLUSIVE

4. Primary Mirror Lock locks the mirror in place during long-exposure photography. MEADE EXCLUSIVE

5. Oversize Primary Mirror diameters are greater than their listed aperture (e.g., the diameter of the 8" LX200™ GPS is actually 8.25"). This additional 1/4" yields a wide, fully illuminated field-of-view. The result is that Meade’s Schmidt Cassegrains have brighter off-axis field illuminations (aperture-for aperture) than competing Schmidt Cassegrain telescopes using non-oversized mirrors. MEADE EXCLUSIVE

6. Smart Drive™ provides permanent periodic error correction (PPEC) on both axes by learning and averaging error over the course of one or more training periods, thereby minimizing guiding corrections during long-exposure photographs. PPEC is available on both axes and functions in both polar and altazimuth modes. MEADE EXCLUSIVE

7. Sony® GPS Receiver Sensor automatically inputs precise time, date, and geographical location to help quickly and precisely align the telescope. MEADE EXCLUSIVE

8. LNT™ – Patented Level-North Technology allows you to quickly and precisely align your telescope by automatically leveling the telescope and determining True North. It then automatically slews the telescope to the first alignment star. MEADE EXCLUSIVE

9. Smart Mount™ constantly refines pointing accuracy each time an object is centered and updated. Compatible with both equatorial and altazimuth mounts. MEADE EXCLUSIVE

10. AutoStar® II controller features “Hot Keys” for quick access to a 145,000 celestial object database. AutoStar II can be updated with the latest software upgrades, guided tours and timely objects like comets free at meade.com. MEADE EXCLUSIVE
