    Product Description
    Meade LX85 German Equatorial Mount

    Meade's new LX85 Series now offers a high-quality, portable, GoTo, German Equatorial Mount that is ideal for astrophotography. It is designed for portability without compensating stability. The Meade's patented Smart Drive system records and constantly refines its Permanent Periodic Error Correction (PPEC) to improve positioning and tracking precision. The 1.75" stainless steel tripod supports the mount and provide stability on most terrain. The tripod comes with a center tray to allow users to hold their eyepieces and accessories while acting as a leg lock. To control the mount, the LX85 is equipped with the iconic AudioStar. The Meade AudioStar hand controller stores 30,000+ objects in database. This computerized celestial object location system plugs into the telescope's handbox port, allowing a quick telescope alignment. Once aligned with the sky, the AudioStar is ready to take you to any object in the over 30,000 object database. Head to your favorite dark-sky location and explore the Galaxies, star clusters, and more!
