Description

Meade's legendary Schmidt-Cassegrain Optical System.


Refined and improved over the years, Meade's Premium Schmidt-Cassegrain (SC) optics give you the highest performance of any on the market. Meade uses waterwhite glass that delivers superior light transmission across the entire visible spectrum for our corrector plates, unlike inferior standard plate glass used by some other telescope manufacturers. Combined with our industry-leading Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC) - with 15% better light transmission than standard coatings - and oversized, thermally-stable primary mirrors for optimum light collection, you get a spectacular viewing experience not available on competitors' SC telescopes.

    Comments about Meade 6 Inch LX80 f/10 SC OTA with UHTC:

    I received this scope in good condition. Assembled all the parts and pieces and was pleased with the results.
    It took a short time because I'm a seasoned Astronomer

    BUT... and a BIG BUT.
    The Telescope came with No information what-so-ever. No Assembly instructions. No Warranty card. No stuff about "Do this"
    or "Don't do that" No warnings about usage. No paper telling you how to set it up.
    Nothing
    Zero

    I'm pretty well versed in telescopes but if you're new to Astronomy...Ah....you might want to think twice about this item.

    I've seen more instructions on a cheap 79 cent charcoal Lighter.
