  • Description

    The Meade LX70 M6 Optical Tube Assembly is an extremely portable 6" Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope OTA. Its long f/12 focal ratio and super sharp optics produce refractor-like images, with bright objects standing in sharp contrast to a velvety dark background sky.  Because of its folded optical design, the Meade M6 Maksutov OTA is very portable, making it easy to store or carry in a relatively small case.  A telescope that is this portable is the perfect thing for an eclipse trip, astronomy vacations, and even terrestrial and celestial photography.  The 6" LX70 Mak OTA can be used on most any mount that has a weight capacity of at least 15 pounds and accepts a Vixen-style dovetail. 

    The Meade M6 LX70 Maksutov telescope is white with blue accents, and comes with an internal focuser, 2" diagonal, and 1.25" adapter.  You will receive two 1.25 inch Plossl eyepieces (9mm and 26mm), a full-sized 8x50 optical finderscope, and an aluminum Vixen style dovetail.  Simply slide the OTA onto an appropriate mount and you're ready to go!
