Features of Meade LX200-ACF 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: (included with model 1010-60-02) 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.
  • 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 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.
  • Meade Smart Mount: constantly refines pointing accuracy each time an object is centered and updated. Compatible with both equatorial and altazimuth mounts.
  • Meade 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.
  • Sony GPS Receiver Sensor: automatically inputs precise time, date, and geographical location to help quickly and precisely align a LX200-ACF Meade Telescope.
  • Meade AutoAlign: Telescopes with Meade Auto Align come pre-aligned. They are smart scopes that know the night sky right out of the box. Meade AutoAlign picks two fail-proof alignment stars for you and places them right in your view-finder. Just center them to fine tune your alignment and the wonders of the universe are at your fingertips.
  • Meade AutoStar II Hand Controller: features "Hot Keys" for quick access to a 145,000 celestial object database. Meade Auto Star II can be updated with the latest software upgrades, guided tours and timely objects like comets free at meade.com.

The telescope seems to be poorly made, the threads for the wedge are messed up, the tripod has a large central hump that prevents good mounting, and it doesn't self align like it is supposed to. When I contacted Meade they give me the runaround like...

Most Recent Review Heavier than you can imagine by Legacy Reviewer, February 15, 2014
After resolving my earlier quality issues with Meade, I'm finding that it has great views and optics; however, the telescope is just to heavy to use single handedly. At 90 lbs, it is way too heavy for a normal person to lift and transport. This is ...

Most Recent Review Meade 10 inch LX2000acf by Legacy Reviewer, October 12, 2010
First of all, let me admit that I am a dimwit and didn't know a lot of common star names when I first got the scope. I was always a planet guy and never worried much about constellations other than Orion and Ursa Major. When this thing goes auto setu...
