Single Fork Mount
The LX65 features a newly designed single arm mount with Meade’s AudioStar® Hand controller. This new mount is compact, yet sturdy, providing a great combination of portability and performance. Additionally, the LX65 has the ability to hold two optical tubes, making your experience twice as enjoyable! With its quick and portable setup, you’re ready to start observing in minutes. The LX65 system breaks down into 3 compact pieces and does not require any tools, making it a breeze to transport to your favourite dark sky location!
This sturdy mount uses AudioStar®, a database containing over 30,000 objects for you to observe! With a push of a button, let the AudioStar® Astronomer Inside take you in a guided tour of tonight’s best objects in the sky! With its built-in speaker, you will be able to learn so much about the objects you’re viewing, it’s like having an astronomer there with you!

Aligning your telescope is simple and straightforward, too. With a simple 2-star alignment procedure, you will be observing the sky in minutes. AudioStar® will find two bright objects and once they are centered in your eyepiece, simply and press ALIGN and you’re ready to go!

This versatile scope features two dovetail receivers that allows you to use two optical tubes at once. Attach up to a 3.2kg (7 lb) OTA on the secondary saddle for a chance to observe your objects both in wide field or close up. This added versatility makes the LX65 great for community outreach or sharing the night sky with others and will be sure to impress anyone with its technology and optics.
