The patented Meade Advanced Coma-Free (ACF) optical design offers the
coma-free pinpoint star images and flatter image fields greatly desired
by discerning amateur astronomers, astrophotographers and professional
observatories alike. This system also reduces the astigmatism and
eliminates the diffraction spikes found in classical Ritchey-Chretien
designs. No competing Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope can make those
claims.

The 10" LX90-ACF has a 10" diameter f/10 ACF optical system (focal
length 2500mm) and Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC) for maximum
image brightness and contrast. Electronics include the advanced
Meade AudioStar™ computer system with over 30,000 object library,
multiple guided tours, High Precision Pointing capability, and Meade
SmartDrive with Permanent Periodic Error Correction.

Precise and quick star alignment is done near effortlessly with an
incorporated 16 channel genuine Sony GPS receiver. The AudioStar™ is
flash-updatable via free downloads at Meade.com (optional cable
required).

All LX90 models feature the solid and stable LX90 aluminum double
fork mount, with fast slew speed adjustable from 1 to 7 degrees per
second. Fine slewing and photographic guiding speeds can be adjusted
from .01x to 1x sidereal in one one-hundredth increments. The mount and
all electronics are internally powered by 8 (user supplied) C-cell
batteries which will typically operate the telescope for a generous 60
hours (optional Meade Universal AC adapter also available). The mount
also has mechanical locks in both axis allowing adjustment even without
power.

The LX90 comes fully equipped with a heavy duty height adjustable
Meade Field Tripod, 1.25" diagonal mirror, Series 4000 26mm 5-Element
Plössl eyepiece, and Meade AutoStar® Suite Astronomer Edition Software
for PC and an 8x50 viewfinder with quick release bracket. Scope weight
is 50 pounds with 19 pound tripod. Ships in 2 boxes.

Product carries full one year Meade limited factory warranty.

Also comes with extra lenses that were purchased separately at a cost of 500.00 dollars as seen in picture 4.
