Meade's LX90 ACF is a favourite of astronomers making the jump to their first, serious, large aperture
telescope. Performance, quality, value and ease of use are the hallmarks of a great telescope.
Now’s your chance to own the legend.
The Ascension premium apo-chromatic refractors were the first reasonably priced
triplet ED telescopes widely available in the UK that use a high quality Japanese ED
triplet (premium FCD1 ED). These first-class photo-visual instruments offer unequalled
value for money and come in three different sizes (80mm F6, 102mm F7 and 127mm F7.5).
The DS-616C XL+ 6 mega-pixel camera is in a class of its own with 50% higher sensitivity in real-world applications (100% max) than other cameras using the same Sony CCD due to its hardware
gain and outstanding hardware noise suppression, both features implemented in the camera's hardware. New PLUS model!
The Ascension ED eyepieces are ideal for observing all types of astronomical objects, from the moon and the planets to nebulas and galaxies. Special ED glass is used in two out of the six elements minimizing chromatic aberrations.
