The Meade LX70 M6 6'' features an advanced Maksutov-Cassegrain design for pinpoint star images and extraordinary contrast, making it a great deep sky performer and ideal for detailed lunar and planetary observation as it easily soars to high magnifications. Its 6'' aperture allows it to resolve details down to 0.76 arc-seconds across and can be viewed using the two included 1.25'' Plössl eyepieces (9mm & 26mm). With its 2'' 90° diagonal it is equipped to handle wide-field 2'' eyepieces out of the box. The 8x50 optical viewfinder with cross-hair reticle makes locating faint object quickly and easily.

The Meade LX70 German Equatorial Mount includes slow-motion controls for both RA and Declination and a heavy-duty, fully height adjustable tripod (33'' to 46'') with steel legs. Advanced features include including brass worm-gear drives on both axes for smooth tracking performance, aluminum setting circles and a built-in leveling bubble. The slow-motion control cables make it easy to track objects even on those frigid nights when wearing gloves is a necessity.

Precision push-pull adjustments in both azimuth and elevation make accurate polar alignment a breeze while the elevations built-in latitude scale will help you dial in your site latitude quickly.
