Meade Instruments Corporation unveils several technology breakthroughs that the company has integrated into its new LX 400 Advanced Coma-Free Telescope line.
Although the Advanced Coma-Free is a premier optical design, Meade engineers saw opportunities for further improvement. Utilizing a precision polished and figured front corrector lens, the engineers were able to create a superior RC optical system by eliminating the typical secondary mirror support structure which causes diffraction spikes that degrade image contrast and resolution. The corrector lens also minimizes the astigmatism inherent in the traditional RC design. Performance was further improved by incorporating computer- optimized baffling and Meade's unsurpassed Ultra High Transmission Coatings (UHTC™) for maximum image contrast and brightness.
In the hands of the serious astronomer or astro-photographer the new Meade RCX400 is an instrument that will produce razor sharp star images across the entire field of view on par with the best professional observatories.
KEY FEATURES GPS & Level-North Alignment System; Upgraded AutoStar II Controller; Cooling Fan; Smart Mount™; Smart Drive™ (Permanent Periodic Error Correction); Oversized Primary Mirror; 24mm Series 5000™ Ultra Wide Angle Eyepiece; Ultra High Transmission Coatings (UHTC)
