Meade LXD75 SN8-AT UHTC 8 inch Autostar
- Meade LXD75 SN8-AT UHTC is an 8 inch Schmidt-Newtonian reflector
type telescope with 812mm focal length and fast f/4 aperture and Meade
Ultra High Transmission Coating, for 20% more image brightness over its
non-UHTC sister model.
- Meade Schmidt-Newtonian optics yield pinpoint stellar images over an
extremely wide field-of-view with only half the coma of standard
Newtonians of the same focal ratio.
- These Schmidt-Newtonian optics are mounted in precision-machined
aluminum cells, which are then mounted in sturdy steel tubes which are
baked with high-grade textured enamel paint.
- The optical tube assembly is closed, reducing air currents inside
the tube, preventing distortion of an otherwise sharp image, and helps
keep the optics clean.
- Water white glass is used in all Meade LXD75 Schmidt-Newtonian
corrector lenses to maximize light transmission, for an increase of
light transmission in excess of 10%, as compared to competitive
telescopes using soda lime glass.
- These Schmidt-Newtonian corrector lenses and mirrors are
individually figured to create a superior optical system which is
renowned for its exquisite smoothness and performance, with Pyrex®
Premium-grade primary mirrors for exceptional thermal stability versus
competing models using standard plate glass.
- Meade Schmidt-Newtonians have extremely fast, well corrected
F/Ratios for short photographic exposure times and wide fields-of-view.
- The Autostar controller included with Meade LXD75 SN8-AT helps
quickly find and goto over 30,000 objects, and can be updated via the
- 8 x 50 Achromatic Viewfinder easily locates and centers deep sky
- Made in the USA and performance tested at the state-of-the-art Meade
- Sturdy Mount with heavy-duty castings designed by Meade engineers
and manufactured for high-performance observing and astrophotography.
- Sturdy German Equatorial Mount is accurate and precise, with RA and
Dec axes that move effortlessly on four high-precision stainless steel
- High-Precision Worm Gears on both axes for smooth tracking and
- High-Precision Pointing (HPP) for even more precise pointing,
putting objects in the center of the field-of-view allowing you to
confirm deep sky objects at the faintest limits of the telescope
- Periodic Error Correction corrects periodic errors on the RA axis
over the course of one or more training periods minimizing guiding
corrections during long-exposure photography.
- 9-Speed Drive Controls From a rapid slew rate of 4.5°/sec. to 1x
sidereal, controlled from the AutoStar controller.
- 3-Star Alignment ensures precise alignment while eliminating the
need for a complicated optical/mechanical alignment process.
- Heavy-duty variable-height field tripod with spreader bar brace
provides the stability and vibration damping required for visual
observation and astrophotography.
- Illuminated Polar Alignment Viewfinder For quick, precise polar
