Meade LX200 is arguably the finest fork mounted go to telescope ever produced in quantity. The recently discontinued 16-inch model was a favorite among colleges and universities around the world. The LX200 pioneered Meade's high precision pointing technology which was necessary for imaging faint targets that were not visible to the human eye. In more recent years the LX200 has lost some of its appeal to a new generation of go to German equatorial mounts, including Meade's own LX850. Nevertheless, it remains a venerable telescope worthy of consideration by anyone seeking a telescope for both visual and imaging applications.
