    If you're considering a serious long-focal-length telescope for astrophotography, a Meade LX600 telescope system may be just the ticket. In a review for Sky and Telescope magazine, Dennis DiCicco says of the 10" version of the LX600, "I can confidently say that it's the best telescope of its type that I've yet tested for astrophotography."

    Meade's LX600 telescopes include Advanced Coma Free (ACF) optics with a relatively fast focal ratio of f/8, high-contrast baffling for superior image contrast, and rock-solid Crayford-style 7:1 focusers with zero image shift to handle bigger astronomy cameras.

    These systems also have a unique split-fork design that reduces the weight of each component to make transport, set-up, and tear-down much faster and easier.

    All Meade LX600 systems include the remarkable StarLock Technology for effortless target acquisition and autoguiding. StarLock includes 80mm f/5 guide optics and a two-camera system that slews to your target, automatically locates a guide star down to 11th magnitude, then guides to <1" accuracy for the length of the exposure. The system also automatically corrects for periodic error. All you have to do is pick a target, focus, and open the camera shutter.

    These incredible automated astrophotography systems are available now for up to $800 off the regular price in 10", 12", and 14" apertures. Until July 31, 2019.
