LX600 ACF Series

The LX600™ with StarLock™

Easier to use. Easier to move. Smart. Only from Meade.

Meade’s remarkable LX600 f/8 ACF with StarLock technology takes a giant leap forward by making astro-imaging much easier and making setup and transportation a breeze. The LX600 is a simple to operate, portable package that makes taking great astrophotos as easy as focusing your camera and opening the shutter. The collection of features and technology integrated into the LX600 is unavailable from any other manufacturer and its ease of use cannot be duplicated by just attaching a set of add-ons to another scope.

FIELD TESTED, USER APPROVED

"...I can confidently say that it’s the best telescope of its type that I’ve yet tested for astrophotography." - Dennis Di Cicco, Sky & Telescope Magazine, May 2016 issue. See the full review here.

FASTER, SHARPER OPTICAL SYSTEM

The  LX600 employs a fast f/8 ACF™ optical system with high-contrast baffling that assures crisp, pinpoint imaging to the very edge of the field. The all-new OTA features an internal Crayford-style, zero image-shift focusing system with a two-speed, 7:1 control.

PORTABILITY & TRANSPORTATION

Need a telescope system that can be easily broken down and moved to a dark-sky site? Always wanted a bigger telescope, but were worried about the weight? With the LX600 Split Fork design, you can have both. The OTA can be quickly separated from the mount, reducing the total weight that must be lifted at one time by 35 lb. This allows for easy setup and transportation even with a 12" or 14" OTA

STARLOCK — FULL-TIME AUTOMATIC GUIDING

StarLock is the revolutionary new technology that makes target acquisition on your imaging sensor and accurate guiding during exposures completely automatic. StarLock uses an 80mm f/5 optic and a super wide-angle lens in a two camera system that automatically finds your target in high-precision, immediately captures a field star as dim as 11th magnitude and then guides to an accuracy of one arcsecond. There's no need for a separate guide or computer and the StarLock requires no user focusing or guide star selection. StarLock automatically programs periodic error correction and then corrects for any other errors down to virtually zero.
