  • Description

    The Meade LX70 R6 Optical Tube Assembly is a 6" Newtonian reflector telescope with a relatively fast f/5 focal ratio for great wide field views.  This telescope OTA is portable due to its 750mm focal length, and weighs just 12 pounds, making it a great choice for travel or folks who'd rather not deal with a big, heavy optical tube.  The Meade LX70 6" Reflector can be used on most any alt-azimuth or equatorial mount that accepts a Vixen-style dovetail. 

    Of course, the perfect match here is the Meade LX70 Equatorial Mount.  Many LX70 customers add a second optical tube assembly, like this portable reflector, to their set-up so that they can travel more lightly when away from home, especially if their main OTA is an 8" reflector.

    The Meade R6 LX70 Reflector telescope is white with blue accents, and comes with a 2" rack and pinion focuser with 1.25" adapter and astrophotography extension tube.  You will receive two 1.25 inch Plossl eyepieces (9mm and 26mm), a 6x30 optical finderscope with built-in reticle, and an aluminum Vixen style dovetail with attached cradle rings.
