Customer Reviews
Helpful Positive Review Meade LT-6 SCT by Legacy Reviewer, December 1, 2010
The Meade LT-6 is an auto-guided Alt/AZ mounted telescope. Because it is Alt/az polar aligned, there is no compensation for field rotation. NOT acceptable for astrophotography use. Pros: Observation is excellent Cons: NOT for DSO photography
