Meade LX90


Meade LX90
Meade LX90 has always been one of our favorite telescopes because of the combination of stability and portability it offers. These telescopes offer greater stability than the Celestron NexStar SE series, and are lighter than the Celestron CPC series. This is a valuable niche in the mainstream astronomy market. LX90 telescopes are now offered exclusively with Meade's Advanced Coma Free (ACF) optics, which are superior to classic Schmidt-Cassegrains. Competition being what it is, Celestron now offers their NexStar Evolution series telescopes into roughly the same market niche.

The Meade LX90 was originally launched with only an eight-inch variant. This has always been by far the most popular telescope in this series, and sightings of the larger models in the wild are relatively uncommon. The overall market for large aperture telescopes, meaning 12 inches or larger, has been dominated by truss tube Dobsonians for at least a decade now with no reason to believe that trend will change anytime soon. If you are seeking a twelve-inch aperture telescope, particularly for portable use, we encourage you to thoroughly investigate Dobsonian telescopes before making a final commitment. Larger Schmidt-Cassegrains and their derivatives are being relegated more and more towards permanent observatory setups.
