Meade LX65 8-inch ACF - BBC Sky at Night magazine review

posted: 18 September 2019

The LX65 8” ACF telescope has been reviewed in the October issue of BBC Sky at Night magazine.

The review mentions the features that stand out, including the two Vixen-style saddles; the main one for holding the supplied telescope and an additional one on the outer side for a second telescope that weighs up to 3.2kg.

The AudioStar hand controller features 30,000 objects covering all the main catalogues of deep-sky targets such as Messier, Caldwell, NGC and IC, along with Solar System targets of the planets, asteroids and comets. It also includes audio voiceovers for 500 objects.

The Meade premium optics stood out once again with the reviewer stating that “optically in our visual test of the field of view it was pin sharp across the whole view”.

The LX65 series stands for quality at a reasonable price and a great user experience. Accessible at a moment’s notice, the LX65 Series combines advanced features and premium optics in an easy-to-use telescope system. The October 2019 issue of Sky at Night magazine is out now.
