    Meade LX85 6" Maksutov Cassegrain OTA

    Meade's 6" Maksutov-Cassegrain optical tube assembly was designed for the LX85 mount. However, the OTA is lightweight enough to be connected to many different mounts. The LX85 Mak-Cass has a folded optical design designed to show you pinpoint star images and high contrast. This makes the Meade LX85 MC6 a fantastic deep sky telescope, great for detailed lunar and planetary observation as it easily soars to high magnifications. This Maksutov, aka "Mak" telescope has an aperture of 6" and a focal length of 1800 mm, making it a great portable instrument for either visual observing or astrophotography.

    The M6 Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope can be easily attached to a wide range of mounts, including the Meade LX85 equatorial mount, via a Vixen-style dovetail. This telescope system is lightweight, at only 12.7lbs, making it easy on the back and allowing for easy and fast set up in your backyard or at a dark-sky site.

    To start you off right, Meade is including two 1.25" eyepieces (a 26 mm and a 9 mm Super Plossl) as well as an 8 X 50 optical finder with the LX85 package. Your new telescope will be ready for observing right out of the box!
