The Meade 12″ LX600 ACF with Starlock is a complete astrophotographic package featuring an ultra-fast Advanced Coma-Free optical system, StarLock autoguider, and an optional f/5 focal reducer/field flattner which makes this one of the hottest telescopes on the market today. Not only does the 12″ LX600 ACF with Starlock have some the best features and technology integrated into its design but it is also simple to operate and is travel friendly.
StarLock: In the telescope mount of the LX600 you will find a unique integrated star tracking and object locator system. These features allow you to center your target perfectly in the field of view. Once centered, the star tracking system communicates directly with the motor drives to automatically assure your scope stays locked onto its target with arcsecond precision. The automated optical tracking system delivers long-exposure guiding with pinpoint stars on astroimages despite atmospheric refraction, periodic mechanical errors, or misalignments. This level of accuracy is exclusive and unobtainable with other systems using software pointing models, high precision encoders, large gears or PEC training- all without the need of an external computer.
New f/8 Advanced Coma-Free Optical System: To achieve zero image-shift and two-speed microfocuser, Meade has completely redesigned the OTA’s with a new focusing and mirror mounting system. The LX600 features faster f/8 ACF optics giving you pinpoint stars all the way across the field of view.
