Advanced f/10 Coma-Free Optics: The Coma-Free or ACF optical design is well known to discerning astrophotographers and is the telescope optical design in many of the leading professional observatories of the world. The LX200ACF is the perfect platform for the demanding researcher and imaging enthusiast with telescopes available in apertures of 8 inches, 10 inches, 12 inches, 14 inches, and 16 inches.

Meade Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC™) 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.

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

Primary Mirror Lock locks the mirror in place during long-exposure astrophotography.

Oversize Primary Mirror diameters are greater than their listed aperture (e.g., the diameter of the 8" LX200ACF is actually 8.25"). This additional 1/4" yields a wide, fully illuminated field-of-view.

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