The LX65 series combines advanced features with world-class optics in an easy-to-use telescope.

The basis of LX65 telescopes is a compact yet robust single-arm mounting. The entire telescope system can be dismantled into three parts without tools. This means it can be easily transported and set up very quickly. One special feature is the second clamp with which an additional OTA weighing up to 3 kg can be mounted parallel to the main telescope- for example a small refractor for viewing a larger area of the night sky.

The operation of the LX65 telescopes is very simple and easy for beginners thanks to the built-in computer control.

Advanced Coma-free Optics (ACF): Meade's ACF optical design eliminates the typical aberrations of all mirror optics. Thanks to ACF, the stars are also point-shaped right out to the edge of the image field, displaying no elongated comet-like distortions. The image field is flatter than that of classic Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes. ACF optical systems show their strengths especially in astrophotographic applications.

Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC): This special multi-layer coating on the front correction plate provides up to 15% more light transmission. The result -brighter star clusters, finer details in nebulae and more surface detail on planets!

 

The AudioStar handheld control provides a database of 30,000 astronomical objects. Once aligned to the night sky, AudioStar can position the telescope to point to any of these objects and centre them in the eyepiece - of course only if the object is above the horizon. The GoTo functionality is supplemented by additional features, such as guided tours, position display and connection to a PC.

A special feature of the AudioStar controller is its built-in speaker. The built-in Astronomer Inside technology provides over four hours of audio commentary (in English only). The built-in astronomer will relate interesting information about astronomical objects located in the field of view!
