Meade LX850 German Equatorial Mount W/O Tripod


The LX850 German Equatorial Mount was constructed of machined Stainless Steel and Aircraft Grade Aluminum to be able to handle the most demanding and stressful of payloads, boasting a 90 lbs payload capacity and exceptional pointing accuracy as good as one arc minute. Features include precision roller bearings on each axis, a 1.75 stainless steel RA shaft, 5.8" main gears, fine manual adjustment controls on both axis, illuminated reticle output port, telescope to computer USB cable and AutoStar Suite software. Mount main body weight is 55 pounds.

The LX850 features Starlock, a revolutionary new feature that makes target acquisition on your imaging sensor and accurate guiding during exposures completely automatic! With Meade's exclusive LightSwitch technology at its core, StarLock uses an 80mm f/5 optic and two camera sensor system to provide computer assisted polar alignment using the drift method. Once aligned the StarLock is guiding the mount in real time, and even automatically programs periodic error correction, achieving a guiding accuracy of up to 1 arcsecond in good seeing and with the capability of guiding on stars as faint as 11th magnitude.

Fine slewing and photographic guiding speeds can be adjusted from .01x to 1x sidereal, with faster slewing at 2x, 8x, 16x, or 1/4, 1/2, 1 or 3 degrees per second. The mount and all electronics are externally powered by the included Meade Universal Power Supply (12V). An external DC battery or power pack may also be used; Meade 607 Power Cord sold separately. The mount includes both mechanical locks and slow motion manual controls in both axis if for some reason you found yourself without power. Includes single 26 pound stainless steel counterweight, additional weights sold separately. LX800 mount shown in photo, LX850 mount similar.
