Meade LX80 SC-6 OTA (optical tube assembly). This 6" SC Schmidt-Cassegrain model includes the Meade 6" (152mm) f/10 optical tube with industry leading Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC) achieving 15% better light transmission than standard coatings, thermally stable oversized primary mirror, and water-white glass corrector plate unlike the inferior plate glass used by some other telescope manufacturers. The result is a spectacular viewing experience not available on competitors' SC telescopes.
Also includes a Vixen-style mounting rail, a Meade Series 4000 26mm eyepiece, an 8x50 viewfinder with quick release dovetail mount, and a quality 1.25" Diagonal Prism. Compatible with all Meade and other brand 1.25” barrel size eyepieces including Series 4000 and Series 5000.
OTA weight (without finder/diagonal/eyepiece) = 10 lbs - 14 oz.
Product carries full one year Meade factory limited warranty (within US/Canada only).

Easy to Use,Quality Lenses,Strong ConstructionCons:
This is a high-tech instrument with excellent fit and finish quality. It exudes quality. It was delivered in very good collimation. It is a beaut! It really delivers on the Meade name and reputation, if you can get your hands on one of these instruments or one of its larger cousins--do! The only negative--if it can be considered negative--is that this is a HEAVY telescope. You must have a sturdy mount to handle this ~14lb. beast!
