Meade LS 6" ACF LightSwitch telescope


FREE Series 4000 Eyepiece and Filter Set 1.25" inch

**LS 3.5" Color LCD Video Monitor**

**This full color monitor plugs directly into the built in camera on the Meade LS-8 LightSwitch telescopes**

**Includes mounting bracket, connector cord and battery pack**

award-winning 6" f/10 (1524mm focal length) powerhouse telescope is
feature packed. Meade's patented automatic self alignment system aligns with
just one touch of the power switch. Just flip the switch and walk away. It
aligns itself. It’s that simple.

Meade's best Advanced-Coma Free optics deliver performance
only seen previously in systems costing thousands of dollars more. With its
standard Ultra High Transmission Coatings (UHTC) the LS gives you the sharpest,
brightest optical system for its size available at any price.

The included AutoStar III GOTO keypad computer has an over
100,000 object library and guided tour functions. Includes Meade ECLIPS color
CCD camera (640x480 resolution) which lets you capture images of your favorite
celestial wonders and display them in real time on an external (user supplied)
monitor or store them on a (user supplied) SD card so you can do CCD imaging
your very first night out.

The included “Astronomer Inside” feature delivers over four
hours of fun and informational audio presentations which can be heard over the
built in speaker, and 30 minutes of video presentations and animations plus
hundreds of still images which can be watched over an external (user supplied)
TV or monitor. Imagine being given a brief and entertaining video presentation
on Saturn while viewing that planet and its fabulous rings for the very first
time. This telescope truly does it all.

Eight (user supplied) C cell batteries will run the
telescope for 3-5 hours, with a Meade Universal A/C power supply available
separately for longer observing sessions. Includes a highly rigid single fork mount featuring aluminum construction with
massive 4.875" precision worm-gears. Standard equipment also includes a
sturdy, adjustable height tripod with steel legs for great stability and
vibration damping and a Series 4000 Meade 26mm Super Plossl eyepiece (77X
magnification). Additional eyepieces available separately, compatible with all
Meade and other brand 1.25” barrel size eyepieces.
