The NEW LX90GPS™ can do more than track satellites. It talks to them as well. Turn it on and the built-in Sony® GPS sensor immediately determines your precise date, time and location. AutoAlign™ then uses this info to align your scope for a tour of the most spectacular sights in the universe. With all the features of the legendary LX90 Schmidt-Cassegrain plus the ability to communicate to satellites, the new LX90GPS now has it all. When it comes to industry-leading American-made optics, depth of features, and value for your dollar, the LX90GPS is the best Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope you can find that can find itself.
AUTOALIGN™ – Telescopes with Meade’s new AutoAlign come pre-aligned. They are smart scopes that know the night sky right out of the box. AutoAlign picks two fail-proof alignment stars for you and places them right in your viewfinder. Just center them to fine tune your alignment and the wonders of the universe are at your fingertips.
DIFFRACTION-LIMITED MEADE SCHMIDT-CASSEGRAIN OPTICS
Meade individually figures their water-white corrector lenses and Pyrex® primary and secondary mirrors for superior light transmission, temperature stability, smoothness and correction.
OVERSIZED PRIMARY MIRROR – Only Meade manufactures their primary mirrors in diameters larger than their listed aperture (e.g. the diameter of the 8" LX90’s primary mirror is actually 8.25").This additional 1/4" yields a wider, fully illuminated field-of-view, and allows you to see the light other telescopes leave behind.
Slew Speed – The LX90GPS slews (moves) from star to star at 7 degrees per second.That is more than twice as fast as the competition.This means that over the course of an evening, a Meade LX90GPS will show you two to three times more objects.
RIGID CAST ALUMINUM FORK MOUNT – The Meade LX90GPS's Optical Tube Assembly is mounted on two sturdy fork arms giving you a rock solid platform for astrophotography.
LX200™ - SERIES TRIPOD – The LX90GPS comes standard with the same sturdy field tripod as the LX200-ACF series telescope.
SMART DRIVE™ – Meade’s AutoStar® provides Periodic Error Correction (in polar mode). Over the course of one or more training periods your LX90GPS will minimize guiding corrections during long exposure astrophotography.
AUTOSTAR CONTROLLER – Meade’s AutoStar® can be updated after purchase. Log on to www.meade.com to download software upgrades, guided tours and timely objects like comets, satellites and new discoveries – Free! Keep your AutoStar up-to-date, and your LX90GPS will grow with you for years to come.
