Meade LXD 75 SN-10AT 10" Schmidt-Newtonian Telescopes w/ UHTC - 10047502 Product Info

The new Meade LXD75 SN-10AT 10" Schmidt-Newtonian Telescope w/ UHTC offers a high-performance equatorial mount, heavy-duty, all-metal imagefield tripod and precision drive system. Stable Meade LXD75 German Equatorial Mount is designed for high-performance observing and astrophotography, the LXD75 Series sets a new Meade standard in their price class for sturdiness, precision operation and smoothness of movement. With the LXD-75, Meade engineers have created a virtually backlash-free equatorial mount incorporating heavy-duty castings and four high-precision stainless steel ball bearings in both RA and Dec axes. The reliable LXD75 drive system has enhanced precision alignment of the motor gear assembly for greatly reduced backlash and tracking smoothness.

Meade has announced its latest MEADE LXD75 Telescopes, a line of high-quality equatorially mounted telescopes with computerized GoTo-type operation (or electronic operation with computer upgrade optional).  Meade LXD 75 telescope line includes Schmidt-Newtonians, Schmidt-Cassegrains, achromatic refractors and a single Meade Newtonian telescope model. The new Meade telescopes feature a high-performance equatorial mount, heavy-duty, all-metal field tripod and precision drive system. The new Meade LXD75 telescope mount holds similarly configured, but improved optical tube assemblies to that now offered with Meade LXD55 telescopes.  Meade LXD75 telescopes (8" f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain, Schmidt-Newtonian models, Achromatic Refractor models, and a 6" f/5 Newtonian reflector) are shipped FREE within lower 48 states!

MEADE LXD75 Telescopes are using similar optical tube assembly, but the following are improvements to the previous Meade LXD55 telescopes have been made in Meade LXD75 telescopes.

New Design MEADE LXD75 Equatorial Mount

Designed for high-performance observing and astrophotography, Meade LXD-75 telescopes set a new Meade standard in their price class for sturdiness, precision operation, and smoothness of movement. With the MEADE LXD75 telescope line, Meade engineers have created a virtually backlash free equatorial mount incorporating heavy-duty castings and four high-precision stainless steel ball bearings in both RA and Dec axes.

New Design MEADE LXD 75 Telescope Drive System

The reliable MEADE LXD75 drive system has enhanced precision alignment of the motor gear assembly for greatly reduced backlash and tracking smoothness.

New Design Meade Heavy-Duty Tripod for LXD75 Meade Telescopes

The new Meade heavy-duty, all-metal field tripod utilizes a locking spreader bar (with three 1.25" eyepiece holders) to lock each leg in place, virtually eliminating flexure. Each leg has two anodized aluminum leg extension locks with an internal brake to eliminate slipping of the internal extending leg. These locks are inward facing so that no accidental bumping of the leg locks can occur.

New MEADE Optical Tube Assembly

Meade's diffraction-limited pptics of Meade Schmidt-Newtonian and Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes yields stellar images over an extremely wide field-of-view. The MEAD LDX75 Schmidt Newtonian telescopes (6" f/5, 8" f/4, and 10" f/4) and the Achromatic Refractors (5" f/9, and 6" f/9) are supplied with an upgraded Meade 8x50 viewfinder, and the standard precision all-metal 1.25"/2" O.D. rack & pinion focuser. The Meade refractors also have improved metal dew shields and heavier duty objective cells. In addition, like the Meade 6" refractor, the Meade 5" telescope has had a system of collimation screws added to the main objective cell.

A new attractively priced Meade 6" f/5 Newtonian reflector with 6x30 viewfinder joins this series and Meade 6" telescope is available with the original Meade EC controller or the Meade #497 Autostar Controller as standard equipment.

MEADE Autostar Controller

The Meade AutoStar GoTo controller helps you quickly find objects in the night sky. You can locate planets, stars, galaxies, nebulae, and comets with a push of a button. Mead AutoStar is pre-programmed with over 30,000 night sky objects and several guided tours.  The Meade AutoStar controller is not included with the EC models of the Meade LXD75 telescopes, but it can be purchased from OpticsPlanet.com and installed any time later .

If you buy your Meade LXD75 telescope from OpticsPlanet.com, authorized US Meade telescope dealer,  Ground shipping is free within 48 lower states!

Features of Meade LXD-75 SN-10AT 10 inch Schmidt-Newtonian Telescope w/ UHTC:

  • Ultra-High-Transmission Coatings.
  • 2" Focuser: Aluminum rack and pinion focuser allows the user to achieve a precise focus.
  • Eyepiece Holder: Accepts both 1.25" & 2" eyepieces. Allows use of all common telescope accessories and cameras.
  • 8x50 Achromatic Viewfinder: Easily locate and center deep-sky objects.
  • Made in the U.S.A. and Performance Tested: All Meade Schmidt-Newtonian and Schmidt-Cassegrain optics are manufactured at Meade's state-of-the-art facility in Irvine, Calif., then performance tested on an Interferometer.
  • Sturdy Mount with Heavy-Duty Castings: Designed by Meade's engineers and manufactured for high-performance observing and astrophotography.
  • Shaft & Bearing System: The sturdy German Equatorial Mount is accurate and precise. The RA and Dec axes move effortlessly on four high-precision stainless steel ball bearings.
  • High-Precision Worm Gears: Located on both axes for smooth tracking and slewing.
  • High-Precision Pointing (HPP): For even more-precise pointing, use the HPP function. HPP puts objects in the center of the field-of-view, which allows you to confirm deep-sky objects at the faintest limits of the telescope's capability.
  • Periodic Error Correction: Corrects periodic errors on the RA axis over the course of one or more training periods, thereby minimizing guiding corrections during long-exposure photography.
  • 9-Speed Drive Controls: From a rapid slew rate of 4.5°/sec. to 1x sidereal - it's all controlled from the Autostar controller.
  • 3-Star Alignment: Ensures precise alignment while eliminating the need for a complicated optical/mechanical alignment process.
  • Heavy-Duty Tripod: Variable-height field tripod with spreader bar brace provides the stability and vibration damping required for visual observation and astrophotography.
  • Illuminated Polar Alignment Viewfinder: For quick, precise polar alignment.
  • Power Supply: Powered by 8 D-size batteries. Can also be powered by optional car cigarette lighter or AC wall adapter.
