    Meade 16" LightBridge Plus Dobsonian

    The LightBridge Plus is the latest addition to Meade's popular LightBridge family of Dobsonian reflectors. Unlike the original LightBridge, this 16" LightBridge Plus has greater stability in a lightweight Dobsonian that's easy to take with you on all of your adventures. With the open truss-tube system, Meade has created a Dobsonian that you can set up and disassemble in minutes. Meade has also enhanced the Lightbridge Plus with vital accessories, such as a 2" dual-speed Rack & Pinion focuser, 26mm eyepiece, aluminum red dot finder, and AutoStar Suite Astronomer Edition.

    Meade's 16" Light Bridge Plus flaunts a 1829mm focal length and fast f/4.5 Meade optics. You will be impressed with this Dobsonian's light-gathering ability, revealing crisp, clear views of planets and deep-space objects alike.

    The best part about the LightBridge Plus - No tools required! Assembly takes just a few minutes and there is no fumbling for wrenches required. You can easily take this telescope to any dark sky location thanks to the open-truss tube design, eliminating the extra bulk and weight of similar solid-tube Dobs.

    Meade has outfitted the LightBridge Plus with many other details you'll love, including premium roller bearings and mounted eyepiece holder, capable of carrying 2" and 1.25" eyepiece for your convenience. A hand-adjustable variable tension brake allows for smooth, stable movement as well.
