The world's most widely used advanced amateur telescope


Now you can own similar optics to what the professionals use. Meade's LX200-ACF brings Advanced Coma-Free (ACF) optics within reach of amateur astronomers. 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.

Using the Meade exclusive design, ACF optics achieve aplanatic performance — with a flatter field, reduced astigmatism and eliminated diffractions spikes — equal to Ritchy-Chrétien systems, at a lower price. Meade’s LX200 also features Ultra-High Transmission Coatings which are specialized multi-layered coatings that are designed to improve the performance of your telescope’s optics. You’ll see brighter star clusters, more fine detail in nebulae, and additional surface features on planets. Averaged over the entire visible spectrum, total light transmission to the focus increases by 15%. 

This is the optical tube assembly only and does not include the mount.
