<p><span style="color: #ff0000;"><em><strong>FREE GROUND SHIPPING LOWER 48 USA!</strong></em></span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Meade has created a design with the same coma free pinpoint star images and flatter field that discerning astrophotographers and most professional observatories have come to expect. The LX200-ACF (Advanced Coma Free) is the perfect platform for the demanding researcher and imaging enthusiast.<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>The LX200-ACF optical system delivers the same sharp, flat, coma-free field from edge to edge as a typical Ritchey-Chretien. The use of the corrector plate in the ACF system creates a closed and protected optical tube, reduces astigmatism and eliminates the diffraction spikes inherent in the traditional RC design.<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>The LX200-ACF includes all the field-proven features of the LX200 including GPS, Primary Mirror Lock, Zero Image-Shift Microfocuser, Oversized Primary Mirror, SmartDrive&trade;, Smart Mount&trade;, AutoStar&reg; II and more. Plus, the LX200-ACF comes with observatory-class optics crafted in Irvine, California, and a Series 5000 26mm 5-Element Pl&ouml;ssl eyepiece.<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p><span style="font-size: large;">Specifications<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></p> <div class="left_product_info" style="width: 374px; margin-left: 6px;"> <p style="margin: 0; padding: 0; float: left; padding-right: 10px;"><strong>Optical Design:</strong> <br /> <span style="margin-left: 15px;"> Advanced Coma Free </span> <br /> <br /> <strong>Clear Aperture:</strong> <br /> <span style="margin-left: 15px;"> 254mm (10") </span> <br /> <br /> <strong>Focal Length Focal Ratio:</strong> <br /> <span style="margin-left: 15px;"> 2500mm f/10 (10") </span> <br /> <br /> <strong>Maximum Practical Visual Power:</strong> <br /> <span style="margin-left: 15px;"> 650X (10") </span> <br /> <br /> <strong>Telescope Mounting:</strong> <br /> <span style="margin-left: 15px;"> Heavy-duty fork type; double-tine </span> <br /> <br /> <strong>Primary Mirror Lock:</strong> <br /> <span style="margin-left: 15px;"> Included (progressive tension) All models </span> <br /> <br /> <strong>Zero Image-Shift Microfocuser:</strong> <br /> <span style="margin-left: 15px;"> Optional accessory.
