$1,399

Meade's LXD75 Schmidt-Cassegrains offer a high-performance equatorial mount, heavy-duty, all-metal field tripod and precision drive system. The SC-8AT with ultra-high transmission coatings includes an electronic hand controller and is fully compatible with Meade's popular Autostar Suite. Features
  • OTA Weight about 12 lbs.
  • Ultra-High-Transmission Coatings.
  • Eyepiece Holder: Accepts both 1.25" & 2" eyepieces. Allows use of all common telescope accessories and cameras. (Requires optional accessory.)
  • 8x50 Achromatic Viewfinder: Easily locate and center deep-sky objects.
  • Made in the U.S.A. and Performance Tested: All Meade Schmidt-Newtonian and Schmidt-Cassegrain optics are manufactured at Meade's state-of-the-art facility in Irvine, Calif., then performance tested on an Interferometer.

    This telescope comes with the #497 Autostar GoTo Hand Controller with over 30,000 object database.

    Premium Meade® LXD75 Optics

    Diffraction-Limited Optics
    Meade's Schmidt-Newtonian and Schmidt-Cassegrain optics yield pinpoint stellar images over an extremely wide field-of-view with only half the coma of standard Newtonians of the same focal ratio.

    Optical Tube Construction
    Schmidt-Newtonian and Schmidt-Cassegrain optics are mounted in precision-machined aluminum cells, which are then mounted in sturdy steel tubes that are baked with high-grade textured enamel paint. The optical tube assembly is closed, reducing air currents inside the tube. This prevents distortion of an otherwise sharp image. Plus, a closed tube significantly helps keep the optics clean.

    Corrector Lens
    Fully corrects for spherical aberration and provides pinpoint star images. Water-white glass is used in all Schmidt-Newtonian and Schmidt-Cassegrain corrector lenses to maximize light transmission. The use of water-white glass increases light transmission by more than 10%, as compared to competitive telescopes using soda-lime glass.

    Individually Figured Optics
    Schmidt-Newtonian and Schmidt-Cassegrain corrector lenses and mirrors are individually figured to create a superior optical system that is renowned for its exquisite smoothness and performance.

    Pyrex® Primary Mirror
    Premium-grade Pyrex mirrors are used in all Schmidt-Newtonian and Schmidt-Cassegrain optical systems, providing exceptional thermal stability versus competing models using standard plate glass.

    System Highlights
  • Sturdy Mount with Heavy-Duty Castings: Designed by Meade's engineers and manufactured for high-performance observing and astrophotography.
  • Shaft & Bearing System: The sturdy German Equatorial Mount is accurate and precise. The RA and Dec axes move effortlessly on four high-precision stainless steel ball bearings.
  • High-Precision Worm Gears: Located on both axes for smooth tracking and slewing.
  • High-Precision Pointing (HPP): For even more-precise pointing, use the HPP function. HPP puts objects in the center of the field-of-view, which allows you to confirm deep-sky objects at the faintest limits of the telescope's capability.
  • Periodic Error Correction: Corrects periodic errors on the RA axis over the course of one or more training periods, thereby minimizing guiding corrections during long-exposure photography.
  • 9-Speed
