    Description

    Meade LX70 5" Refractor Telescope

    Another revolutionary product from the innovative LX70 Series, the Meade LX70 5" Refractor Telescope echoes "Light Astroviewing Brilliance" in its name. The Meade LX70 telescopes are high quality telescopes equipped with smooth German-Engineered Equatorial Mount. With its wide 120mm aperture and approximately 1000mm focal length, you will be able to grasp beautiful views of the Moon, planets and the majestic deep space. The mount features a brass-worm gear drives, aluminium setting circles, integrated leveling bubble and a vixen-style dovetail; all working together to offer a smooth yet powerful night sky navigation. The built-in slow-motion controls enable celestial objects tracking with much precision and ease. The strong steel tripod also offers extra assurance on the overall telescope stability. A 2-inch 90° diagonal with 1.25" adapter and a 6x30 finderscope are included in this telescope set.
