The main pros and cons in a nutshell

The main pros and cons in a nutshell

Extended catadioptric telescope

The Meade 8" LX90-ACF is a catadioptric telescope with a lens diameter of 203 millimetres. The large mirror in the telescope provides a long focal length of 2000 millimetres, while the large diameter of the lens provides a high light output. This gives you a clear and sharp image of celestial bodies. The telescope comes with a 26 millimetre Super Plössl eyepiece, it fits in a 1.25 inch fitting. The Meade 8" LX90-ACF telescope is very suitable for the ambitious beginner and for the astronomer who is a beginner and wants to switch to a more serious version. The telescope is easy to use and delivers higher image quality that normally only larger telescopes can deliver. The Meade 8" LX90-ACF can be used for the following purposes:

  • Deep sky-observations
  • Land observations
  • Country photography
  • Moon observations
  • Moon photography
  • Planet photography
  • Planet observations
  • ACF optics

AudioStar technology

Thanks to Meade's AudioStar technology, the telescope is equipped with more than 30,000 pre-programmed objects, and thanks to this GoTo system, the telescope can automatically search for celestial objects when you enter them into the computer. You can also choose the option of an audio tour over the star or planet in question. For certain celestial bodies, the telescope even provides additional textual information. Thanks to a Sony GPS receiver, the AudioStar technology is very accurate and can also be updated free of charge via the Meade website. 

Suitable for astrophotography

This telescope is also suitable for astrophotography. If you want to use the Meade 8" LX90-ACF for astrophotography, you need the right camera adapter and T2-ring for your camera. These accessories can be found under the header 'Astrophotography' at the top of the menu bar. Please note: in astrophotography, it is important that you choose the right products specifically for the right brand of camera
