Award-winning Advanced Coma-Free (ACF) optics.

Advanced Coma-Free LX200 Optical Tube comes with Meade's Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UTHC), Oversized Low-Expansion Borosilicate Primary Mirror, Schott Borofloat Glass Corrector Plate, Diffraction Limited Optics, and Dust Cover.

The "advanced" in Advanced Coma-Free

The Advanced Coma-Free (ACF) optical system has brought the highest level of optical performance well within the reach of most amateurs. Using the Meade exclusive design, ACF optics achieve aplanatic performance ƒ__ with a flatter field, reduced astigmatism and eliminated diffractions spikes ƒ__ equal to Ritchy-ChǸtien systems, at a fraction of the price. Coupled with Meade's Ultra- High Transmission Coatings (standard on all LX200-ACF systems), you have the ultimate in premium optics.

Primary Mirror Lock

All LX200 models feature a primary mirror locking mechanism, which effectively prevents movement of the primary mirror during long exposure astrophotography or observing. Turn the lock knob located just above the telescopes main focus knob and the progressive-tension primary lock completely cancels any residual image shift due to mirror movement during visual, photographic, or imaging applications.

Meade Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC)

Increases total light transmission and image brightness by nearly 20% over Meade's standard coatings. Objects such as stars, galaxies and nebulae will appear significantly brighter.

NOTE: Dovetail rail, is not included.
