The new Meade LXD75 SN-8AT 8" Schmidt-Newtonian Telescope w/ UHTC 0804-75-02 offers a high-performance equatorial mount, heavy-duty, all-metal field tripod and precision drive system. Stable Meade LXD75 German Equatorial Mount is designed for high-performance observing and astrophotography, the Meade LXD 75 Series sets a new Meade standard in their price class for sturdiness, precision operation and smoothness of movement. With the Meade 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 Meade LXD 75 drive system has enhanced precision alignment of the motor gear assembly for greatly reduced backlash and tracking smoothness.

Features of Meade LXD-75 SN-8 AT 8" Schmidt-Newtonian Telescope w/ UHTC - 0804-75-02:
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.
