Meade 6" Maksutov Cassegrain Telescope with LX85 Computerised GOTO German Equatorial mount. 

The LX85 Series 6" MAK Telescope has a Maksutov-Cassegrain optical design for pinpoint star images and extraordinary contrast, making it a great deep sky performer and ideal for detailed lunar and planetary observation as it easily soars to high magnifications.

Meade's new LX85 Series features a high-quality, portable, GoTo, German Equatorial Mount. The LX85 Series is the perfect choice for the cultivated observer and astro-imager looking to chase deep-sky objects! Use as a stand-alone mount or maximize your viewing potential with an array of different optical tubes. Meade's LX85 Series will keep you looking up for many years to come and sets a standard for mid-sized telescopes at a great price.

The LX85 mount features a vixen-style dovetail, for mounting optical tubes up to 33lbs, coupled with a sturdy build, that ensure smooth tracking performance. With it's included integer gearing in the motor drive, you’ll be able to track through long exposures using permanent periodic error correction (PPEC), another benefit for astrophotography. Seamlessly image the best parts of the night sky with not having to worry about performing a meridian flip. This stable mount can impressively handle slight load imbalances with ease. This mount includes an integrated autoguider port to readily connect to your autoguider camera, making your astro-imaging experience easy and straightforward.

With the included AudioStar™ hand controller, you have easy access to 30,000-objects, that you can view with a simple press of a button! AudioStar™ features a built-in speaker that plays educational content about the celestial objects you view!
