Grab yourself a bargain on this refurbished Meade 8" LX200 OTA! This particular telescope has a brand new corrector plate manufactured by Toscanoptics in Italy, who guarantees the quality to be identical to the original and checked using Fitzeau interferometry. The telescope has been collimated and tested under the sky to ensure perfect operation.



The Meade 8" f/10 ACF Schmidt-Cassegrain utilizes Meade’s award-winning Advanced Coma-Free™ (ACF™) optics for high contrast, sharp images and views. With the appropriate mount, the 8" f/10 is the perfect tool for imaging of small galaxies and planetary nebulae.

Features an internal zero image shift Crayford-style focusing system with a two-speed 7:1 reduction control that provides smooth, precise focusing at any magnification. Includes precision machined Losmandy-style dovetail rail mated to the tube with wide-stance radius blocks for rock-steady mounting, and front and rear dust covers.
