Meade 14'' LX600
The New LX600" f/8 ACF with StarLock". Advanced Technology, Easy to Use, Easy to Move. Meade's remarkable LX600 f/8 ACF with StarLock technology takes a giant leap forward by making astro-imaging much easier and making setup and transportation a breeze.

The LX600 is a simple to operate, portable package that makes taking great astrophotos as easy as focusing your camera and opening the shutter. The collection of features and technology integrated into the LX600 makes it a complete system that will work right out of the box.

No need to hassle with numerous accessories from different sources that you need to combine and understand n your own. Let the StarLock technology guide you to the imaging results you ever dreamt of.
Fast f/8 Advanced Coma-Free (ACF) optical systems.
Meade has completely redesigned the OTAs with a new mirror mounting and focusing system to achieve zero image-shift and a two-speed microfocuser. The scope features faster f/8 ACF" optics giving you the same pinpoint stars all the way across the field like the renown f/10 ACF, but with a wider view and shorter exposure time. The optional f/5 focal reducer will give you deep images at a fraction of the exposure time. The OTAs are available in 10, 12, 14 and 16 inch apertures.

Internal Crayford-style 7:1 Focuser.
The completely redesigned mirror mounting system achieves zero-image shift, eliminating the need for a mirror lock and integrates a two-speed microfocuser for quick and easy adjustments. The main mirror is precisely kept in place even when slewing from horizon to horizon.

Portability.
Need a telescope system that can be easily broken down and moved to a dark-sky site? Always wanted a bigger telescope, but were worried about the weight? With the NEW LX600 Split Fork design, you can have both. The OTA can be quickly separated from the mount, reducing the total weight that must be lifted at one time by more than 15kg. This allows for easy setup and transportation even with a 12" or 14" OTA.

AutoStar II hand control with over 144,000 object database to take you to almost any object imaginable at the push of the GoTo button. AutoStar II allows the user to setup and operate the LX600 in just the way you want.
StarLock.
The LX600 integrates a unique star tracking and object finding system into the telescope mount. This integration allows the telescope to center your target perfectly in the field of view. Once centered, the star tracking system communicates directly with the motor drives to automatically ensure your scope stays locked onto its target with arcsecond precision.

The automated optical tracking system delivers long-exposure guiding with pinpoint stars on astro-images. This level of precision rivals far more expensive systems that are more complicated to use and all without the need of an external computer.
All New X-Wedge (optional)
Precision CNC-machined from ultra-ridged, aircraft-grade aluminum with smooth, accurate altitude and azimuth adjustments. Significantly more rigid than the standard Ultra wedge, the new X-Wedge is the essential accessory for long exposure astroimaging with LX series fork mounts.

Solid Fork Mount with Heavy Duty 5.75" gears.
Large, high-quality worm-gear drives in both axes provide smooth movements with low periodic error that are critical for long exposure astrophotography. They provide the freedom to go horizon to horizon without any meridian flip, unlike German Equatorial Mounts.

Giant Field Tripod. With 3" diameter chromed steel legs and cast aluminum tripod head the Giant Field Tripod provides a rock solid foundation for the LX600 10, 12 and 14 inch models.
