  • Description

    Meade LX70 R5 5" Achromatic Refractor
    Optical Tube Assembly

    The Meade LX70 5" Achromatic Refractor is equipped with a high-quality air-spaced objective lens that produces high resolution and incredible contrast for lunar, planetary, and deep-sky observations. The 120 mm (4.724") clear aperture of the Meade LX70 refractor allows it to resolve details down to 0.9 arcsecond across.

    Astronomical objects can be viewed using the two included 1.25" Plossl eyepieces (9 mm & 26 mm). With its 2" rack and pinion focuser and 2" 90° diagonal, the LX70 R5 Refractor is equipped to handle wide-field 2" eyepieces right out of the box.

    The 270020 LX70 R5 5" Achromatic Refractor by Meade includes a 6x30 optical viewfinder with cross hair reticle which makes locating faint objects quick and easy. Sold as an OTA without the mount. This scope is ready for your own custom mounting.
