Meade 10" LX90 ACF

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on July 17, 2009
Somewhat heavier than I thought it would be; good optics; autostar is easy to use. Setup and collimation is a bit of a chore.
Pros: shows objects well, easy to find objects
Cons: setup and collimation takes about 1/2 hour ...

Meade 10" LX90 GPS Telescope with UHTC w/ GPS & LNT, Meade Autostar Computer Controller 1010-90-61

I bought the Meade LX90GPS 10 inch. The quality of the image is amazing. It will blow your mind. However, the weight of the telescope is an issue. I suppose that is the obvious trade-off with telescopes. I can barely lift it myself. Its really a 2 person operation. One consequence of the weight is the scope actually fell over at one point while trying to move it - and its currently back at Meade for $400 of repairs.

Wonderful technology. It talks to you, tells you the date and time and location and tells you all about the stars and things you view in the sky. This is highly recommended. The only problem is it is a little bit on the heavy side; other then that it's great!...
