Meade Telescopes

Founded in 1972, Meade has become one of the world's foremost manufacturers of telescopes and accessories for amateur astronomers of all levels. From the research-quality LX200-ACF Meade Telescope Series with advanced coma-free optics to affordable, easy-to-use refractors, Meade telescopes have become synonymous with quality and innovation. 

Among the most popular Meade telescopes for beginners are the models in the Meade ETX series. ETX stands for "Everyone's Telescope," and though it means that this telescope is easy to use, it could also mean that everyone who sees one buys it! The Meade ETX-80AT-TC Astro Telescope with AutoStar is TelescopesPlus.com's bestseller in this series. It comes with Super Plossl eyepieces, a built-in Barlow lens, and an 80mm clear aperture for greater light gathering, image brightness, and detail.

A step up in price but a light-year advance in technology, the Meade 6 Inch LS Telescope with LightSwitch Technology is one of the most advanced consumer telescopes on the market. Simply flip the switch and this telescope system performs a fully automatic, hands-free alignment with no user input. In just minutes, the Auto Star III hand controller is ready to locate 100,000 celestial objects. It's the telescopic equivalent of having R2D2 steer your X-Wing fighter.

Meade eyepieces are true feats of design and engineering. Meade's flagship Series 4000 eyepieces combine superb magnification and pinpoint edge-of-field sharpness with extremely low astigmatism and spherical aberration. In their price range, they're virtually unbeatable--and the same could be said of the Meade telescope eyepieces in the 5000 series.
