Product Info

Manufacturer Description

The massive, observatory class 16" LX200-ACF has 16" diameter f/10 ACF optics (focal length 4064mm) and Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC) for maximum image brightness and contrast. Features the advanced LX200 AutoStar II computer system with 145,000 object library, multiple guided tours, High Precision Pointing capability with sub arc-minute pointing accuracy, Meade SmartDrive with Permanent Periodic Error Correction, and super precision electrically driven Meade Zero-Image-Shift Microfocuser.

Precise and quick star alignment is done near effortlessly with Meade's level north technology alignment system incorporating a 16 channel GPS receiver, while Home and Park functions retain information for permanent installations. The Autostar II is flash-updatable via free downloads at Meade.com (optional cable required). The drive base of the telescope has multiple input and output ports including an RS-232 PC interface and jacks for a (user supplied) CCD Autoguider and illuminated reticle.

Mechanically loaded as well, all LX200 models feature a primary mirror locking mechanism which effectively prevents movement of the primary mirror during long exposure astrophotography or observing. Turn the lock knob located just above the telescopes main focus knob and the progressive-tension primary lock completely cancels any residual image shift due to mirror movement during visual, photographic, or imaging applications.

The 16" LX200-ACF features a massive fork mount cast in one continuous piece, with a total of four 80mm roller bearings for declination and two even larger 150mm and 100mm roller bearings in azimuth. Fast slew speeds are from 1 to 6 degrees per second, and can be user selected at .1 degree per second increments, while fine slewing and photographic guiding speeds can be adjusted from .01x to 1x sidereal in one one-hundredth increments. Power is supplied via the included AC adapter.

The 16" LX200-ACF comes fully equipped with a Meade Super Giant Field Tripod, 2" diagonal prism, Series 4000 26mm Plossl eyepiece, 8x50 viewfinder with quick release bracket and Meade AutoStar Suite Astronomer Edition Software for PC. Sold without pier or tripod, ready for your custom mounting. Scope weight is 245 pounds. Ships on pallets, truck freight.
