Features of Meade LX200-ACF OTA Optical Tube Assembly Telescopes with UHTC:

  • Advanced Coma-Free Optics: Meade Advanced Comafree design is a huge jump over the traditional Schmidt-Cassegrain as far as sharpness of image, flatness of field, and color. Meade Advanced Coma Free Telescopes delivers the same sharp, flat, comafree field from edge to edge as a typical Ritchey-Chretien. The use of the corrector plate in the Meade ACF system creates a closed and protected optical tube, reduces astigmatism and eliminates the diffraction spikes inherent in the traditional RC design. ACF optical system by Meade perform at the same high level as comparable RC systems costing thousands more.
  • Meade UHTC Ultra-High Transmission Coatings: increases total light transmission and image brightness by nearly 20% over Meade standard coatings. Objects such as stars, galaxies and nebulae will appear significantly brighter. For more information on Meade UHTC, please, click here.
  • Primary Mirror Lock: locks the mirror in place during long exposure astro photography.
  • Oversize Primary Mirror: diameters are greater than their listed aperture (e.g., the diameter of the Meade 8" LX200 ACF is actually 8.25"). This additional 1/4" yields a wide, fully illuminated field-of-view.

Package Contents:

  • Meade LX200-ACF UHTC Advanced Coma-Free Telescope OTA Optical Tube Assembly
  • Ultra High Transmission Coatings (UHTC)
  • Primary Mirror Lock
  • Oversized Primary Mirror
