The NEW LX90GPS can do more than track satellites. It talks to them as well. Turn it on and the built-in Sony GPS sensor immediately determines your precise date, time and location. AutoAlign then uses this info to align your scope for a tour of the most spectacular sights in the universe. With all the features of the legendary LX90 Schmidt-Cassegrain plus the ability to communicate to satellites, the new LX90GPS now has it all. When it comes to industry-leading American-made optics, depth of features, and value for your dollar, the LX90GPS is the best Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope you can find that can find itself.


Features:

  • AUTOALIGN - Telescopes with Meade?s new AutoAlign come pre-aligned. They are smart scopes that know the night sky right out of the box. AutoAlign picks two fail-proof alignment stars for you and places them right in your viewfinder. Just center them to fine tune your alignment and the wonders of the universe are at your fingertips.
  • IFFRACTION-LIMITED MEADE SCHMIDT-CASSEGRAIN OPTICS
    Meade individually figures their water-white corrector lenses and Pyrex? primary and secondary mirrors for superior light transmission, temperature stability, smoothness and correction.
  • OVERSIZED PRIMARY MIRROR - Only Meade manufactures their primary mirrors in diameters larger than their listed aperture (e.g. the diameter of the 8" LX90?s primary mirror is actually 8.25").This additional 1/4" yields a wider, fully illuminated field-of-view, and allows you to see the light other telescopes leave behind.
  • Slew Speed - The LX90GPS slews (moves) from star to star at 7 degrees per second.That is more than twice as fast as the competition.This means that over the course of an evening, a Meade LX90GPS will show you two to three times more objects.
  • RIGID CAST ALUMINUM FORK MOUNT - The Meade LX90GPS's Optical Tube Assembly is mounted on two sturdy fork arms giving you a rock solid platform for astrophotography.
  • LX200 - SERIES TRIPOD - The LX90GPS comes standard with the same sturdy field tripod as the LX200R series telescope.
  • SMART DRIVE - Meade?s AutoStar provides Periodic Error Correction (in polar mode). Over the course of one or more training periods your LX90GPS will minimize guiding corrections during long exposure astrophotography.
  • AUTOSTAR CONTROLLER - Free! Keep your AutoStar up-to-date, and your LX90GPS will grow with you for years to come.
  • SMARTFINDER(RED DOT) & 8 X 50 VIEWFINDER - Quickly and easily locate and center deep sky objects.
