The LX90GPS now with Meade's Advanced Coma Free (ACF) optical system delivers wide, coma-free images with pinpoint stars all the way out to the edge of the field.


  • 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.

  • Diffraction-Limited, Coma-Free Optics: Meade ACF Advanced Coma-Free optics have taken the LX90 to the next level, raising the bar for both visual observing and astrophotography without raising the price. The LX90-ACF optical system delivers wide, coma-free images with pinpoint stars all the way out to the edge of the field.

  • Oversized Primary Mirror - Only Meade manufactures their primary mirrors in diameters larger than their listed aperture (e.g. the diameter of the 12" 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 LX90ACF 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 LX90ACF will show you two to three times more objects

  • Rigid Cast Aluminum Fork Mount - The Meade LX90ACF's Optical Tube Assembly is mounted on two sturdy fork arms giving you a rock solid platform for astrophotography.

  • LX200 - Series Tripod - The LX90ACF 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 LX90ACF will minimize guiding corrections during long exposure astrophotography.

  • New AudioStar Handbox

    AudioStar with Astronomer Inside Standard on the LX90 and LT lines of telescopes. Here's why your customers will be excited to get this amazing new product. Only Meade Instruments' NEW AudioStar with Astronomer Inside does all this:

    • Look and listen as the Astronomer Inside guides you through the universe, describing, in detail, the objects you are seeing in the eyepiece. With over four hours of audio descriptions of astronomical objects including planets, stars, constellations, clusters, nebula, galaxies and more, the AudioStar brings astronomy to life. It's like having a professional astronomer standing next to you at the telescope.
    • The NEW AudioStar with Astronomer Inside takes you on a guided tour. Shows you the best objects in your sky from your location and time and then plays audio descriptions of those objects so you learn the details of what you are seeing.
    • The NEW AudioStar knows the sky so you don't have to. It controls the telescope to find and track any of over 30,000 celestial objects automatically.
    • The NEW AudioStar with Astronomer Inside and the intelligence integrated into these Meade Instruments' telescopes provides the user with all the experience and astronomical knowledge that a professional astronomer could offer.

    • Smartfinder (Red Dot) and 8 X 50 Viewfinder - Quickly and easily locate and center deep sky objects.

    • Ultra-High Transmission Coatings - This will increase light transmission through the telescope's mirror and lens system. The result is enhanced image brightness on the order of 20% and a dramatically improved ability to resolve faint details on all celestial objects.
